Uncompensated care Geisinger Clinic recognizes that its mission is to serve all the members of the community with respect to the provision of healthcare services and healthcare education. Gc provides quality medical healthcare regardless of race, creed, sex, national origin, handicap, age or ability to pay. In this regard, gc provides free care or subsidized care, to persons covered by governmental programs at or below cost, and provides various health activities and programs in support of the communities where gc practices. A. charity care the primary concern of gc is the delivery of health care to all the citizens in northeastern and central Pennsylvania, regardless of their ability to pay. The unreimbursed cost of charity care represents the cost gc incurs by providing free or discounted services to those who cannot afford to pay. For fiscal year ended june 30, 2020, the cost of charity care was 13,366,979. B. medicare/medicaid recognizing its mission to the community, services are provided to the elderly (medicare) and the poor (medicaid). Clinic provides care, below cost, to persons covered by these governmental programs. To the extent reimbursement is below the cost of providing healthcare, gc is furthering its mission to the entire community. The unreimbursed value of medicare and/or medicaid is equal to the cost of providing services less the amount of reimbursement received under the program. For fiscal year ended june 30, 2020, the unreimbursed value of providing care to these patients was 103,762,689. C. other uncompensated patient services in addition, gc provides other patient services for which full payment is not received.

Research support Geisinger Clinic supports its charitable mission through medical research activities at two facilities on the campus of the Geisinger medical center: the siegfried and janet weis center for research (wcr) and the henry hood center for health research. The wcr provides a focus for laboratory research and research training, and supports the clinical staff in their research programs. The primary mission of the wcr is to conduct original and innovative research that contributes new knowledge to biomedical science. Scientists apply modern molecular and cellular approaches to diverse research problems in the areas of cardiovascular function, cancer and developmental biology. The henry hood center for research houses two research programs: the Geisinger center for health research (gchr) and the center for clinical studies (ccs). Gchr conducts health services, epidemiologic and population genetics research on the broad range of conditions typically seen in primary and specialty care settings. The mission of the ccs is to plan, conduct, foster and support innovative clinical research trials to help advance diagnosis and treatment of disease and improve patient care. All three research programs investigate extramural resources for funding and work collaboratively on building the capability for population-based genetics research. To the extent revenues and grants received are below the cost of research operations, Geisinger Clinic is furthering its mission to the entire community. The unreimbursed cost of Geisinger Clinic's research operations for fiscal year 2020 was 2,147,915. Iv.
