Study says Affordable Care Act could trigger hospital cuts
Los Angeles Business Journal

Researchers from UCLA and Virginia Commonwealth University found that California’s 21 safety-net hospitals that care for uninsured and the poorest patients could face a$1.5 billion shortfall down the road as a result of the Affordable Care Act, the Daily Breeze reported.

The deficit would not be realized until 2019, when federal funding cuts go into effect, according to the study, which was published in Health Affairs.
