Contracted Trauma/Burn Center Funding

Each fiscal year the Georgia Trauma Commission provides funding to support trauma center readiness, registry, and uncompensated care. Key features of trauma center funding include:

  • The performance-based pay program (PBP) assigns a percent at risk to a portion of the trauma readiness funding based on performance metrics.
  • Uncompensated care funding (UCC) is allocated to level I & level II trauma centers and burn centers and is based on center-specific historical data, audited annually by a third party, and subject to available funds.
  • One-time readiness and registry grant for centers not currently participating in GTC funding

A center must be ACS Verified to participate in Georgia Trauma Commission funding; all trauma center/burn allocations are reviewed and approved by the Budget Committee and then brought forth for Commission approval a year in advance.
