With possible health care changes on the horizon, Warner Hospital and Health Services has to prepare for what that could mean for their revenue.
Illinois is a Medicaid Expansion state under the Affordable Care Act, which allows the Warner Hospital to collect enhanced federal funding. CFO Donna Wisner reports that because the number of people on Medicaid grew, so did their funding.
On top of those funds, the hospital received an additional 21,250 dollars as a part of the Medicaid Electronic Health Record Incentive Program.
The health care repeal and replace vote was canceled last Friday. Plans to move forward with the American Health Care Act have been put on hold.
