Patient Experience Ratings Could Harm Safety Net Hospitals
Abrams California Health Insurance represents all plans with the major insurance carriers.
( August 1, 2012 - Laguna Niguel, CA -- Laguna Niguel, California - Patient experience ratings could exacerbate the financial troubles of safety net hospitals when Medicare begins adjusting payments to hospitals in October based in large part on this rating system. Safety net hospitals have proven a vital health care resource for those who are struggling financially, as the poor make up the vast majority of their patient base.

Unfortunately, safety net hospitals have historically received lower marks from patients than standard hospitals are given, according to a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine. Furthermore, the gap between ratings for the two types of hospitals has widened over the course of the four years that hospitals have had to publicly report their survey results.

A decrease in funding for safety net hospitals could have a serious impact on health care California for those in the low income/poverty brackets. Provided the recent decision in favor of the health care reform law is not overturned, nearly every United States resident will be required to have, at minimum, basic health insurance coverage. Fortunately, companies like Dan Abrams Health Insurance Service provide affordable coverage options for people in every income bracket.
