September 03, 2014

Hospitals in states that expanded Medicaid under the ACA are experiencing significant financial benefits, according to an analysis by PricewaterhouseCoopers' Health Research Institute. Researchers found that the nation's three largest hospital systems - Community Health Systems, HCA Holdings, and Tenet Healthcare - experienced a significant decline in admission rates of uninsured patients and experienced a significant increase in admission rates of Medicaid patients in expansion states during the first half of this year compared with the first half of 2013.
