I have a question for all of you that do Lifeline at your hospital. How and what do you count. After doing some digging, I realized that we have actually been making money on Lifeline due to changes in billing from the company, but no changes on our part. Definitely not a community benefit. Now our billing is changing so I want to make sure that we start off this process right and count what we can for community benefit. We had been counting the time that it took our staff to do the instillation as well as their mileage to and from the homes. We count whatever cost their is for returning items. What else are you counting (and how) to make it count as community benefit? I feel like we’re making this more complicated than it should be. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

We only count the money we loose on Lifeline when it is provided to underserved and we are compensated below our cost of providing the services. Hope that helps.
