Money.com and The Leapfrog Group released their Best Hospitals for Billing Ethics list. To compile this new list of the best hospitals for ethical billing practices in partnership with Money, the Leapfrog Group used data from the submitted via the 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Survey, which participants were required to submit by August 31, 2022. Those categories are inpatient care management, adult and pediatric complex surgeries, pediatric care, medication safety, maternity care, outpatient procedures and infections.
To qualify for the list, eligible hospitals were required to carry an A or B letter grade on the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade assessment for fall 2022. Hospitals were also required to meet a qualitative assessment of excellence, and were disqualified if they exceeded national mortality rates for heart attacks, heart failure, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or coronary bypass surgery or if they earned a C or worse on the 2022 spring Safety Grade assessment.
The 565 hospitals that made the cut are a combination of adult and children’s hospitals, urban and rural, teaching and non-teaching, etc.
