Calculation of Amount to Remove from Subsidized Health Section as "Included in Other Categories"
This worksheet provides a consistent method for preventing duplicate costs in the various community benefit sections of the report, which were also already embedded in the subsidized health section. If your hospital has already developed a method you are comfortable with, there is no need to revise that method. If you do not have a method, the attached worksheet allows you to calculate this amount as simply as possible.
