The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has announced that there will be reductions in funding for hospitals who provide care for many low income patients, and for hospitals with too many patients who develop infections while in the hospital.  In addition, there will be higher penalties assessed for those hospitals with readmissions within 30 days.

These cuts in funding are part of the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) and the aim is to make hospital care safer and more less costly. If you are affected by this and have any questions, you can contact Stark & Stark located in Yardley, Pennsylvania
