Understanding Taxes

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 received more than $13.7 million from tax revenues in fiscal year 2019.

This revenue is applied to uncompensated care and charity care, which totaled more than $27.6 million (unaudited) in fiscal year 2019 (July 2018-June 2019). 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.

Volume of major payment sources for FY ending June 30, 2019

  • 32.4% - Medicare
  • 28.9% - Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • 12.0% - Other Commercial Insurance Providers
  • 11.7% - Medicaid
  • 9.6% - Self Pay
  • 3.3% - Worker's Compensation
  • 2.1% - Other Government

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 www.cchwyo.org/about-us/board-of-trustees/.
