uncompensated and under-compensated care servicesoakwood's uncompensated care for our communities is exemplified by care provided to persons needing emergency and inpatient care as well as other services. Oakwood delivered patient care services to our community's un-insured and under-insured through our charity care (oak assist) program. Oakwood wrote off approximately 7,200 cases at an estimated $35 million in charges at a cost of $8. 7 million to charity care in 2014. Federal poverty guidelines, absence of assets, credit scores and a number of other criteria are used to ensure that oakwood provides the care to the most deserving of our population. Another component to oakwood's total uncompensated care is comprised of bad debt and losses incurred on our medicaid book of business. In 2014, oakwood wrote off approximately $137. 3 million in bad debt (adjusted for patient discount) at a cost of approximately $36. 7 million. In addition, 20. 8% of oakwood's patient revenue is from the medicaid programs. Unfortunately, medicaid reimbursement is insufficient to cover costs of the care and fall about $45. 2 million short. In total, oakwood provided almost $289. 7 million (gross charges) in uncompensated care in 2014.
