Viewpoint: Why emergency physicians haven't lost under the ACA — yet
from Becker's Hospital Review
Physicians have had a trying couple years. Implementation of the Affordable Care Act has brought on change, both good and bad. Physicians now have more patients in their waiting rooms while declining reimbursements and changing payment models drive significant redesign of healthcare delivery. Emergency physicians, in particular, are acutely aware of these changes. As the uninsured move onto insurance rolls, more patients hit emergency departments around the country. Yet the healthcare space has turned on ED admissions as a sign of ineffective prevention and overpriced care, making the ED a taboo "entrance to the hospital."
