I wonder how much of the Alabama hospitals' payments are for stand alone physician practices which the hospitals purchased and were collecting 80% more than than the standalones were collecting prior to the acquisition? Wake up call coming on 1/1/13.....Do they follow MedPac's recommendations to Congress?
