NAUH releases a study that finds that private, non-profit urban safety-net hospitals care for more low-income and uninsured patients and are in worse financial condition than any other type of private hospital. These urban hospitals care for especially large numbers of Medicaid patients, uninsured and underinsured patients, and low-income seniors who cannot afford their Medicare co-pays and deductibles. They also suffer financially because they care for so many Medicaid patients and many state Medicaid programs reimburse them for much less than the cost of the care they deliver to these patients.
