Two Massachusetts safety-net hospitals hit hard by budget cuts
Massachusetts budget cuts will hit two of the state's safety-net hospitals particularly hard: Boston Medical Center has been notified it will not be reimbursed $64 million for care delivered to low-income Medicaid patients last fiscal year, and Cambridge Health Alliance will lose out on $40 million it had been expecting. An executive at Boston Medical said the hospital will be forced to cut services. Officials at Cambridge Health Alliance said they had not yet been notified of the cuts, but earlier this year the Boston Globe reported that the hospital was on track to lose $26 million in the fiscal year that ended June 30.
