Obama Care Could Cost Pennsylvania Hospitals

07.17.14 | Bob Price

Twenty five percent of the hospitals in Pennsylvania are being penalized for not meeting the requirements set forth by the Affordable Care Act, costing them a total of almost $20 million. That'll mean higher bills for patients starting in October. Administrators say health care facilities are going to be stretched tighter in their ability to invest in services and care for patients. There are over 150 hospitals in the Common Wealth. About 40 are being penalized because of this Obamacare mandate.
