Healthcare bill poses credit risk for nonprofits

Reuters, May 17, 2010

The U.S. healthcare overhaul bill will provide insurance coverage for millions of Americans and possibly lower healthcare cost inflation, but it poses an increased credit risk for nonprofit providers, Standard & Poor's said. "We expect that the expanded insurance coverage will create winners and losers among providers, based on their existing and future payor mix, their ability to meet demand from newly insured patients, the impact on disproportionate share funding, and the impact on commercial healthcare insurance availability and rates," said S&P analyst Liz Sweeney in a new report.
