Abstract:
Federal funding aided hospitals in hospital construction and coverage of Medicare, Medicaid, and indigent patients but in 1983 these funds were being drastically cut. Consequences of decreased funding places the burden on hospitals to make-up the difference, often passing expenses on to insurance company or to uninsured patients. The article looks at how local government might be a possible solution for hospital funding with decreased federal support.
