Amount Generally Billed Calculation

Ascension Sacred Heart calculates two AGB percentages – one for hospital facility charges and one for professional fees – both using the “look-back” method and including Medicare fee-for-service and all private health insurers that pay claims to the Organization, all in accordance with IRS Reg. Sec. 1.501(r)-5(b)(3), 1.501(r)-5(b)(3)(ii)(B) and 1.501(r)-5(b)(3)(iii).

The details of those calculations and AGB percentages are described below.
