Hospitals leery of Pennsylvania tax scheme
Philadelphia Inquirer, March 13, 2008

The department says most hospitals will make money in the deal because Pennsylvania can use the new assessment to leverage more federal funding for Medicaid. Representatives from the hospitals involved, however, remain skeptical.
