La Crosse area hospitals among those charging Medicare the least
Hospitals in the La Crosse area charged the nation's fourth-lowest prices to Medicare patients and their government program in 2006.
That's according to a study by Dartmouth College.
It found that Medicare spending in the La Crosse region totaled $5,800 per person, over $350-dollars than the next lowest charge in Appleton.
In fact, all Wisconsin markets were below the national average, including the state's highest.
