Amount Generally Billed

Med Center Health uses the “look-back” method to calculate the amount generally billed (AGB) as required by federal law. The AGB is the maximum amount we will collect from a patient who is eligible for Financial Assistance under our Financial Assistance Policy. The AGB percentage is based on all claims allowed by Medicare fee for service and private health insurers over a 12-month period divided by the associated gross charges for those claims. The following is percentages were calculated on this basis for the time period of October 2022 through September 2023 for each of our hospitals. If you have any questions or wish to speak with us about this policy, please contact us at the Customer Service contact information at the bottom of this page.

  • The Medical Center at Albany AGB percentage is 26.7%.
  • The Medical Center at Bowling Green AGB percentage is 27.9%.
  • The Medical Center at Caverna AGB percentage is 40.9%.
  • The Medical Center at Franklin AGB percentage is 35.8%.
