Hospitals are opting out of new Minnesota health plan

Minneapolis Star Tribune, April 19, 2010

A revamped Minnesota healthcare program for about 37,000 of the poorest and sickest state residents will start June 1. But with funding cut to one-fourth of the projected costs, it appears that only five of 17 qualifying hospitals have agreed to provide the care. Hospitals in Duluth, Mankato, Rochester, St. Cloud, and five other cities have told legislators that they will not participate, as have Abbott Northwestern in Minneapolis, United in St. Paul and Mercy in Coon Rapids, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
