Obamacare: An uneven playing field for hospitals

CNBC, December 10, 2013
At Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, the push is on to get patients insured under Obamacare plans. Since Thanksgiving, there's been a line outside of the hospital's enrollment center every morning when the doors open at 7. With the HealthCare.gov website now working better, the hospital is helping more than 100 people a day look over and enroll in plans. "We've reached out to 22,000 of our patients," said Marian Morrow, Parkland's patient financial service manager, in the crowded enrollment office. In 2012, Parkland provided $685 million in uncompensated care for its mostly uninsured patient population and for those who are underinsured.
