Director’s Cut: Article of the Month from Library Director Jeff Garvey
Hospitals should expect substantial changes in net income as a result of the Affordable Care Act. The author uses the circumstances of a hypothetical 115 bed hospital to forecast the potential impact of the ACA. Self-pay cases will dwindle as more of the uninsured purchase coverage through the exchanges. Medicare, Medicaid and commercial payments will be affected in different ways. Anticipating trends is vital to hospitals’ efforts to mitigate the likely changes.
