California Hospitals Will Benefit From Reform
California Healthline

The California Hospital Association and the state’s congressional delegation were able to score a “great victory” for hospitals and patients as part of national health reform legislation, CHA President and CEO C. Duane Dauner writes in Payers & Providers. The two-year deal will avoid diverting Medicare payments from California hospitals to “so-called low-cost/high value states” and instead will provide $400 million in funding over two years for counties with low Medicare spending, Dauner adds.
