MS hospitals won't try to kill tax for Medicaid

CBS MoneyWatch, January 19, 2012

The leader of the Mississippi Hospital Association says his group won't fight renewal of a tax his members pay to help fund Medicaid. The association protested in 2009 when then-Gov. Haley Barbour pushed for the hospital tax. Now, the association's president and CEO, Sam Cameron, says the tax gives hospitals something very important—predictability in their expenses.
