Nashville General Hospital anticipates cash influx from city workers

The Tennessean, October 27, 2008

There are 33,000 employees, spouses, and children that are covered by Nasvhille insurance plans that qualify for a new incentive program at Nashville General Hospital at Meharry. The program calls for General to waive co-pays, co-insurance, and deductibles for the employees and their dependents. "If 10% of those individuals, or even 5%, choose General Hospital, you'll significantly shift the payer mix toward a mix that drives real revenue toward the organization," said Reginald Coopwood, MD, chief executive of the Metro Hospital Authority, which runs the hospital.
