How much of your tax money comes to CCH?
Campbell County Health frequently receives questions from the community
on the amount of taxes that come to the hospital. Every year, homeowners
and business owners receive a tax notice from Campbell County Government.
If you want to see how much you contribute in taxes to the Campbell County
Hospital District, please look under the "How Your Taxes Are Used"
section in your tax notice – check out the line named
CNTY Hospital Dist Trust Fund.
Taxes are collected by the State of Wyoming, and then paid out to different
entities in each county - City, County, Hospital, School District, etc.
Roughly 85 percent of the revenue is assessed from local industry while
15 percent is paid by Campbell County residents through their property
taxes. Approximately 5 percent of residential property taxes goes to the
Campbell County Hospital District. CCH will received more than $17.7 million
from tax revenues in 2014.
This revenue is applied to uncompensated care and charity care, which totaled
$23.1 million in 2015. Since 2010-2014, CCH wrote off $99.4 million in
bad debt. Please note that bad debt/charity care does not contain discounts
that are given to insurance companies like Blue Cross; those are negotiated
amounts by the health care organization and insurance company in a contract.
Campbell County Health is not a division of
Campbell County Government. It is a separate entity with its own Board of Trustees who are elected
by the members of our community. CCH Board of Trustee meetings are open
to the public and take place the fourth Thursday of the month at 5 pm
at CCMH, 501 S. Burma Ave, Fifth Floor Classrooms 1 and 2. You can even
view archives of the meetings at
