L.A. County faces major shake-up under health care reform
Los Angeles Daily News

Los Angeles County’s health system faces millions in lost funds and closures of hospitals or clinics if large scale changes to implement the Affordable Care Act are not made in the next year, or in some cases within three months, according to a report expected to be presented to the county Board of Supervisors next week. Under President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, the county’s health system will no longer receive federal money through the Disproportionate Share Hospital fund.
