Healthcare reform unfinished, part 1: Hospitals take a hit
This week, KYW Newsradio is presenting a special report, "Health Care Reform – Unfinished." Surveys find there are nine-Million fewer uninsured after the enrollment period prescribed by the Affordable Care Act. But that alone does not equal success for the Act, known as Obamacare. Hospitals have not yet realized the savings of universal health care but they're already feeling the bite of cuts in payments. The Hospital Association of Pennsylvania embraced health care reform. Hospitals had provided Billions in uncompensated care and the promise of universal coverage appealed not only to their bottom line but their values.
