financial assistance and means-tested government programs: financial assistance, also known as charity care, is defined as free or discounted health services provided to individuals who cannot afford to pay and who meet the eligibility criteria of the organization's financial assistance policy. Financial assistance is reported in terms of costs, not charges, and does not include bad debt. Pih health offers a generous financial assistance program, providing charity care to those with family income(s) at or below 400% of federal poverty level guidelines. In providing services to those patients participating in means-tested government health programs, such as medi-cal, pih health realizes a collective net loss each fiscal year due to the shortfall created when the payments received from these programs are less than the cost of caring for public program beneficiaries. This payment shortfall is not the same as a contractual allowance, which is the full difference between charges and payments by government programs. Number of persons served by financial assistance and means-tested government programs: 38,142for additional information, please refer to pih health's community benefit report at pihhealth.

community health improvement services and community benefit operations, health professions education, subsidized health services, research, and cash and in-kind contributions for community benefit are comprised of the following: community health improvement services: defined as community health improvement activities, which extend beyond patient care activities (usually subsidized by the healthcare organization and do not generate patient care bills, although may involve a nominal fee). These programs include: community collaboratives, care force one mobile health services, community education, community information and referral support, enrollment assistance, health and wellness center at whittier first day, light rail transit coalition, preventative health programs and screenings, support groups, and transportation resources. Health professions education: this category includes educational programs for physicians, nurses and other health professionals when education is necessary or required by state law, accrediting body or health profession society. Pih health programs include the family medicine residency program, paramedic base station training and student education (internship, externship, preceptorship and mentoring programs). Subsidized health services: subsidized services are clinical programs, which are provided despite a financial loss so significant that negative margins remain after removing the effects of financial assistance, bad debt and medi-cal shortfalls. Nevertheless, the service is provided because it meets an identified community need and, if no longer offered, would either be unavailable in the area or fall to the responsibility of government or another nonprofit organization to provide. Pih health services provided include diabetes education center, emergency department and specialty services, high-risk infant follow-up clinic, and hospice homes. Research: research that may be reported as community benefit includes clinical and community health research as well as studies on healthcare delivery that are generalizable and shared with the public. Pih health has been offering clinical trials and research studies aimed at improving health and cancer care since 2001. Clinical trials offered include breast, colon, kidney and lung cancers, as well as leukemia. Cash & in-kind contributions: this category includes funds and in-kind services donated by pih health to community organizations or to the community-at-large for a community benefit purpose. These donations include cash donations to community organizations, hours contributed by staff to the community while on pih work time, the cost of meeting space provided to community groups, and the donations of food, equipment, medications, and supplies. Total number of persons served by all categories: 77,370for additional information, please refer to pih health's community benefit report at pihhealth. Org/cbannualreport
