Trauma and Burn Center Funding

Georgia Trauma Commission Contracted Centers

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.
