60 Doctor-Owned Hospitals Will Now Be Canceled Due To The New Health Care Law

Hospital 300x300 60 Doctor Owned Hospitals Will Now Be Canceled Due To The New Health Care LawAccording to the executive director of Physician Hospitals of America, more than 60 doctor-owned hospitals across the country that were in the development stage will now be canceled.  Why?  Well, it is because of the new health care law that Barack Obama and the Democrats wanted so badly.  Apparently the new law singles out physician-owned hospitals, making new physician-owned projects ineligible to receive payments for Medicare and Medicaid patients.  Without those payments, new doctor-owned hospitals just simply would not be feasible.  Doctor-owned hospitals that currently exist will be "grandfathered" in under the new law, but must seek permission from the Department of Health and Human Services to expand.

As a result, according to Molly Sandvig, the executive director of Physician Hospitals of America, more than 60 doctor-owned hospitals across the country that were in the development stage will now be canceled.

Isn't that wonderful?

"That’s a lot of access to communities that will be denied," Sandvig told CNSNews.com, the news source the originally broke the story. "The existing hospitals are greatly affected. They can’t grow. They can’t add beds. They can’t add rooms. Basically, it stifles their ability to change and meet market needs. This is really an unfortunate thing as well, because we are talking about some of the best hospitals in the country."

Is it any wonder that the American people are so upset about this health care bill?

It is one of the worst pieces of legislation in the history of the American republic.

A bill that was supposed to give all of us better health care is now going to force the cancellation of 60 doctor-owned hospitals.

What will they think of next?

    Just curious about where the bill states that physician owned hospitals are not available for Medicare & Medicaid patients. I work with hospitals so this would be helpful. Section & paragraph info would be helpful.

    Thanks.

    All I see are doctors complaining. No one else is really complaining. Maybe it’s time that doctors pay takes a hit in this recession, just like everyone else has.

    The last time the government tried to take over healthcare, groups of doctors opened hospital systems and called it Blue Cross and Blue Shield. It killed the legislation. That’s what BHO is afraid of!

    Yeah… This sounds like a big fabrication. You haven’t posted any proof that anything you say is true… and frankly, it’s inflammatory garbage that attacks the Obama Government. Americans attacking their leader in a time of intense economic danger is SUCH a dick move.

    The rules fall under Title VI, Section 6001 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The provision is titled “Physician Ownership and Other Transparency – Limitations on Medicare Exceptions to the Prohibition on Certain Physician Referral for Hospitals.”
