Tampa-area hospitals face $151M cut
from Health News Florida
Hillsborough County hospitals are scheduled to lose more than $151 million a year in funds for care of the uninsured beginning June 30, according to a report released. The scheduled changes to two revenue streams “represent a tremendous loss of federal funding to the county and pose a significant risk,” warns the report by the Community Justice Project, part of Florida Legal Services. Statewide, the coming annual loss will be $2.1 billion, estimates co-author Charlotte Cassel. “There is a huge cut looming,” she said.
