Middle Tennessee-based Community Health Systems, HCA, and other hospital groups would receive $171 billion over 10 years in reimbursements for the newly insured under legislation to provide medical coverage for all U.S. citizens, the American Hospital Association said in a report to industry and lawmakers.
