Cost of hospital stay increasing at five area hospitals


The cost of a hospital stay is going up at five area hospitals. Mayo Clinic Health System is raising rates at its hospitals in Eau Claire, Menomonie, Osseo, Bloomer and Barron. The nearly 6% increase will take effect January 1st.  Mayo says inadequate reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid, is a big reason for the rate hike.
