I would love to see global budgets work out for more hospitals.To me the key question is whether hospitals can stop billing patients once they go onto global budgets. Billing patients is of course the root cause of gouging, collection agencies, suing pathetic patients, etc. Besides the ethical ugliness, patient billing requires extra staff that is not cheap.
I wonder if the hospitals in Pennsylvania just stopped billing Medicare patients, or if they keep on with normal billing as kind of a shadow account.
Keep us informed about any related cases! thanks
