Georgia hospitals, insurers likely to avoid new fees
The federal stimulus package is expected to lead to termination of a state plan to tax hospital revenues. The addition of $1.73 billion in stimulus aid for the state Medicaid program has almost certainly killed the proposed levy on hospital revenues, according to legislative leaders and healthcare industry officials. A similar tax on health insurer revenues appears to have died as well, amid the strong anti-tax sentiment among state legislators.
