"Bonus Payment" - Hospitals Glossary Terms and Abbreviations
An additional amount paid by Medicare for services provided by physicians in Health Professional Shortage Areas. Currently, the bonus payment is 10 percent of Medicare's share of allowed charges. This is not to be confused with other payments to hospitals, such as the disproportionate share payment or the settlement made to facilities at the end of a cost report year.
