Homes To Be Hit By Health Care

This summer, the narrowing down of the medical safety net of Washington is going to shake-up the health care services in Washington.

It is calculated that about forty thousand people who depend on the subsidized basic health plan insurance of the state are going to be left without coverage in the next few months as a result of spending cuts in health, which is close to $1 billion, as authorized by the legislature.

The health care spending cut will deliver a sharp blow to the hospitals, medical establishments, nursing home programs and public health in the next 2 years.

During the intervening period, job cuts over the last few months were causing problems, specifically to the medically uninsured, that could go up to over 800,000 in the present year. Some of the premier community clinics and hospitals have no other way but to brace the adversity.

Rebecca Kavoussi, the Director of Community Health Network based in Washington expressed that the impact of health plan cuts had propelled to step-up the number of uninsured. And the impact is happening at a fast pace.

Homes To Be Hit By Health Care

Effect of fund reductions in Hospitals & Clinics

An analysis by the Association of Washington State Hospital has observed that a fund reduction of about $310 million is going to hit the state-wide hospitals. The health care programs are being cut down because of the lack of sufficient support for tax increment, argues a leading lawmaker.

Despite these health cuts, one of the leading hospitals, St. Peter hospital is not placing any restrictions on its 11,000 patients. The authorities are still continuing its radiology and laboratory services. Some of the leading hospitals are tightening up their expenditures by cutting down spending on several things like checking equipment purchase, regrouping management, reducing energy and many more. These hospitals are taking over an appreciable number of uninsurable patients who have urgent needs. Some hospitals are trying to promote revenue through anti-coagulation clinics. These clinics have been designed to help recover orthopaedic patients.

Taking these things into consideration, it transpires that in the coming days, the clinics are likely to lessen the supplemental services such as health education, care coordinators and other behavioural health services.

The Congress recently committed the state of about $2 billion as economic-stimulus for health care and related services. This would avoid any cuts to programs like Medicaid. It is being observed that a considerable number of doctors are placing limits on the number of Medicaid patients who visit them. The most pathetic part is that a large number of patients who lost their jobs have been declared unfit for most of the charity care. Most of them are in the age group of 50 and 60. Even a four percent cut in funding to hospitals can affect the uninsured badly.

Public Health Cuts: Impact on County

Lawmakers announced a reserve of $55 million for the purpose of vaccination. This will result in higher cost to doctors and clinics, as the state will no more provide low-cost vaccines to these clinics. These vaccines will now be available through the offices of the private doctors. The county now has no other way but to accept this adversity.
