3. South East Regional Trauma Coordinating Committee Funding Task Force Funding for hospitals and physicians may be a key factor in successful regionalization of trauma systems A complete discussion of funding must include repatriation opportunities/responsibilities Traditional funding sources for uncompensated care generally come through counties Any reappropriation of county funding must be approved by our various Boards of Supervisors/Governing Boards

4. South East Regional Trauma Coordinating Committee Funding Task Force PLAN: Work with county budget analysts to discuss current revenue streams that are generally used to pay for MIA/indigent/uncompensated care Using trauma registries, identify patients that cross county/state lines Identify payor source for those patients Identify county/state/country of incident when possible Aggregate patient charges when available

5. South East Regional Trauma Coordinating Committee Funding Task Force EXISTING FUNDING SOURCES – SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY SB 110 – Disproportionate Share Hospital funding and the Safety Net Care Pool funds (disproportionate share of low income and uninsured) Maddy Fund 58% - physicians providing emergency care up to the 48th hour 25% - hospitals providing disproportionate trauma and ER 17% - EMS agencies/EMS programs ** Pediatric Trauma Care Realignment – sales tax, VLF transferred from State to counties Note: All these funds currently fully committed to support care within counties and are insufficient to cover current needs
