Issue Brief February 2013 Minnesota Department of Health Introduction The system of health insurance coverage and financing in Minnesota and the U.S. leaves some individuals struggling to meet their share of health care costs, resulting in health care providers bearing significant costs related to uncompensated care. It is the expectation of many health care observers 1 that implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), 2 through its provisions affecting health care market regulation and the development of insurance exchanges, will reduce the need for provider-based uncompensated care.

Overall, uncompensated care appears to be about evenly split between charity care (care provided for free or at a discounted rate to low income patients who are eligible for it), and bad debt (care for patients with a responsibility to pay, who do not meet that obligation).
