Supreme Court Health Care Repeal Would Drive Up Hospital Costs: Study

  1. Health care reform repeal would slam big for-profit hospital chains like HCA, Community Health Systems and Tenet Healthcare as uninsured people continue to flood emergency rooms and rack up bills they can't pay, according to a report released Wednesday by Moody's Investors Service.

    Hospitals didn't get everything they wanted from President Barack Obama's health care reform law but industry lobbying groups backed it anyway. Hospitals agreed to take a $155 billion, 10-year hit on their Medicare payments in exchange for the law's plans to expand health insurance coverage to more than 30 million people. Since federal law requires hospitals to treat anyone who shows up in an emergency room, hospitals currently have to eat much of the expense from poor people who can't afford their medical care.
