Reed Smith partner Karl Thallner┬ájust published “Health Care Reform During the Obama Presidency: The Impact on Hospitals” in BNA’s Health Care Policy. Karl discusses several aspects of the Obama plan, including access to coverage, individual mandates, delivery and payment, and transparency. As the article notes, “[t]o the extent that health care reform reduces the uninsured population, hospitals could benefit through a reduction in uncompensated care and bad debts. In addition, hospitals may see increases in patient volumes with the reduction in the uninsured.”
