Hello,

I live in North Carolina and have been doing some research on health care costs of hospitals as it relates to the care of their own employees.

Using Medicare Cost Report data I have been able to calculate how much each hospital in the United States reported to Medicare that the hospital spent in providing health benefits to its work force.

For example, Duke University reported the following for 2015, 16, and 17:

(CMS #, Facility Name, Per Employee Cost, Number of Employees).

340030 Duke University Hospital $6,838 7,929
340030 Duke University Hospital $7,253 8,275
340030 Duke University Hospital $7,368 7,707

In contrast, Asante Rogue reported:


380018 Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center 10/01/2014 767 23,807
380018 Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center 10/01/2015 846 22,387

Nationally, the average employee health expenses for 2016 were about $5,400 per employee (employer portion) for single coverage.

You can find these fields on your submitted Cost Report.

I am trying to determine if these data are correct.

Thank you for your help.

The data I have (obtained from CostReport.com) show that Beloit had:

Thank you for your help.

Click below to open a PDF that lists all of the hospitals in the US and their Per Employee Health Care Costs Per Year.  Some hospitals have multiple listings which represent multiple years.

Search for your hospital by name to find how much your hospital reported its expenses were for its employee health plan (actual reported expenses to Medicare expressed as an average amount per employee (this is the hospital's share, not the employee's share)):

This data is unaudited.  American Hospital Directory, Inc. is the source for this Medicare Cost Report data.  The calculations of Per Employee Costs were performed by me.






Feel free to contact me at 336.528.9639 if you have any questions.

My name is Joe Vincoli.

When a hospital provides health care services to its own employees it is referred to as 'domestic care'.

Hospitals report these 'domestic care' expenses to Medicare on their annual Cost Report.

The national median for these reported expenses is about $6,000 to $7,000 per employee per year (employer's portion).

Many hospitals, however, report expenses of $15,000, $20,000, $25,000 and more.
