Medicare to settle hospital reimbursement dispute
Los Angeles Times

Medicare agreed to settle a dispute with about 2,200 hospitals nationwide over a decade-long error in reimbursement rates, offering what could amount to a $3 billion infusion to hospitals already bracing for funding cuts under the federal healthcare law. More than 200 California hospitals are included in three similar agreements reached April 5, and they stand to share a total of more than $310 million.
