Obama's bronze plan only pays 60% of the bill. Who pays the balance?

So Hamot has reduced employment by 100 FTE's, and announces they expect uncompensated care to increase next year under Obama care.

Damn fine plan you democrats saddled us with.

I notice though, that you libs aren't saying a word about the 100 non clinical job cuts (most of which were probably democrats). Obamacare is cutting jobs, now. And most of those lost jobs are democrats. But I guess in Dem speak that is good, cause apparently dems don't wanna work anyway. Of course I've been saying for years that if you ACTUALLY work for a living you got no damn business being a democrat. But what the hell, facts don't mean anything. Right Scott?

Do any of you have jobs? Day after day, you sit here and whine. If you do have jobs, you are wasting your employer's time.

The real parasites are at the top of these phony " non profit " corporations. Nothing but mafia skimming their portion of the cream from the top. There is a reason UPMC iis being sued by the city of Pittsburgh. Not to mention that the CEOs of the top 10 health insurers all were paid over 10 million last year. That's 100 million taken out of the equation by 10 people. The poor take the blame while the leeches at the top suck the blood from the system. You are nothing but a useful idiot for the taker class.

Yeah, you are so hard working that you can waste your boss's time multitasking by posting on Topix. You are stealing from your employer, getting paid for posting on Topix.

What a loser, spend your spare time ranting about poor people on Topix. You can't even spell, you illiterate.

Like you ever gave a shit about anybody losing their job. The Republican Party has done nothing but aid and abet the off shoring of jobs for the last 30 years. Now the exploitation has reached health care. 10 CEOs sucking the teat of the system to the tune of 100 million a year. Where the hell do you think the money for an 8 dollar Tylenol goes, to the nursing staff? Get rid of the tit suckers and there will be plenty of money to provide care to everyone.

Hamot's responsibilities for 'uncompensated care, have zero to do with the affordable Care Act and zero to do with sickness. Hospitals ONLY have to treat Emergency Medical Conditions.

EMTALA, the Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act signed into law in 1986 by Ronald Reagan, requires Medicare-participating hospitals with emergency departments to screen and treat the Emergency Medical Conditions of patients in a non-discriminatory manner to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay, insurance status, national origin, race, creed or color.

An Emergency Medical Condition is defined as "a condition manifesting itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that the absence of immediate medical attention could reasonably be expected to result in placing the individual's health [or the health of an unborn child] in serious jeopardy, serious impairment to bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of bodily organs."
