Eau Claire (WQOW) -

Mayo Clinic Health System hospitals in northwest Wisconsin will raise rates by 4% on January 1.  A spokesman says the increase will "help offset the $534 million of uncompensated care due to inadequate reimbursement of $517.7 million from Medicare and Medicaid".

The spokesman also says Mayo provided over $16 million in charity care for patients in financial need this year.
