Using Leapfrog’s Hidden Surcharge Calculator, employers and purchasers can calculate the surcharge they pay as a result of hospital errors. This estimate can be derived using an employer's claims data as well as the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades of utilized hospitals. The calculator enables purchasers to discover their annual hidden hospital error surcharge and average surcharge per admission.
By shifting employees to “A” hospitals through improved benefits plan design, employers can decrease these hidden surcharges and protect their employees and dependents from harm.
