Dan Bleck was quoted in the Modern Healthcare article “Hospitals remain stressed, but don’t blame the ACA” addressing the misconception that the Affordable Care Act is the reigning force pushing healthcare providers into bankruptcy. The article outlines a combination of other factors that are also contributing to healthcare providers’ financial distress—including tort-based litigation, payment delays, bad merger agreements, pressure on reimbursement rates, increasing costs and the rapidly changing healthcare environment.
