Ohio-based University Hospitals seeks exemption from Medicare limits

Cleveland Plain Dealer, June 9, 2008

Ohio-based University Hospitals Case Medical Center is opening a new cancer hospital in December 2010, and officials want to have everything in place to receive more government money for cancer patient care. University Hospitals is lobbying Congress for an exemption from limits on Medicare reimbursements, which would provide the hospital with millions of dollars more each year for treatments, research, and top physician talent. But nearby rival Cleveland Clinic wants the proposal blocked.
