MSHA CEO Worried About SCOTUS Obamacare Ruling
After Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Obamacare, Mountain States Health Alliance (MSHA) CEO Dennis Vonderfecht held a press conference explaining how the ruling would affect local healthcare. Though Vonderfecht said he believes that expanding healthcare coverage to 32 million more Americans is a positive step, he is worried about the upcoming reimbursement cuts hospitals across the country will have to face. In the last year, MSHA has provided over $167 million dollars in uncompensated care to local patients, and Vonderfecht’s concern is that unless MSHA and other hospitals nationwide can reduce these uncompensated costs, they will not be able to function under the scheduled reimbursement cuts.
