Self Pay

Higher Insurance Premiums driving industry from providing health care

Obamacare has caused insurance premium increase for small business to be at least 15% up to 35%

Higher deductibles

Higher- Co-pays

Essentially have created a class of insured self pays

Consequence Rural Ga Hospital Net Revenues down 5%-15% since Jan1 2010

HomeTown Health - Ga Health Care Fall Industry Update 2010

Positives for Stand Alone Rural PPS Hospitals

Virtually No operational positives except best administrators in the industry

Medicaid Rate Increase designed to offset Provider Tax – 1st Medicaid Rate Increase since 1998

HomeTown Health - Ga Health Care Fall Industry Update 2010

Negatives for Rural PPS Hospitals

Very poor Payor Mix

85.6% of cost paid for Medicaid

In counties of highest unemployment

Cannot support specialties like surgery due to demographics

Encumbered by cost to charge ratio

Major subsidy dependent

Demographics do not support surgeons or specialist except on part time basis thus insufficient Commercial

Bank covenant violation

State Computer Conversion – ACS to HP

Medicaid expansion to + 33 million

Simply run out of cash

Loss of UPL and dilution of Private DSH

GRHA

  • 2012 State Budget Implications
  • Make the case
  • Budget = 85% Education, Corrections, Medicaid
  • Medicaid Stimulus stipulation says cannot cut eligibility thus only rates which are already at 85.6% of cost.
  • Can we take $2 billion out of Corrections and Education? No so everything else goes!!!??

HomeTown Health - Ga Health Care Fall Industry Update 2010

  • The Future of Rural Health Care 1 of 6
  • Rural Hospital Closures
    • 5-10 rural hospitals can close in next two years
    • Will destroy 5-10 economic engines
    • Will destroy immediate access to health care to 100,000 Georgia citizens
    • FQHC’s compete with rural hospitals for volume until hospital closes then FQHC has to re-engineer itself with no local acute care referral station. Federal funded FQHC trumps locally/state funded delivery systems until they fall then FQHC’s have major problems. $10 million annually to state from Feds.
    • Example McRae Hospital closed last year

GRHA

  • The Future of Rural Health Care 2 of 6
  • Regionalization
    • It takes 40,000 population to support a hospital and 33% commercial
    • It takes general surgery and Orthopedics
    • Local hospitals have to either consolidate or collaborate resources
    • Example – Ty Cobb closing two hospitals to make one
slide23

HomeTown Health - Ga Health Care Fall Industry Update 2010

GRHA

  • The Future of Rural Health Care 3 of 6
  • Consolidation of programs
    • Public Health will consolidate with duplicate agencies
    • Territorial silos have to be torn down to eliminate duplicative services
    • Example-
      • If every district does something different and state says standardize and eliminate non-core work
      • Orthopedics in Southeast Georgia – Tattnall, Jenkins, Screven, Jesup

  • The Future of Rural Health Care 4 of 6
  • Accountable Care Organizations – ACO’s
    • 5000 Medicaid covered lives
    • They are ill-defined but mandated in the health care reform package
    • Will result in capitation type organizations which will require new collaborations

  • The Future of Rural Health Care 5 of 6
  • Telemedicine
    • This is the new glue
    • Two new grants
      • $2.5 million for program expansion
      • $1 million over 3 years for national telemedicine extension center
    • Currently 170 sites with 40,000 consults
      • Will add 67 sites immediately due to new grant
      • Hospitals, nursing homes, CSB’s, Corrections, Public Health, school nurses, trauma, stroke,
      • Will evolve to in-home on-line delivery of health care via telemedicine – on line consults
slide26

  • The Future of Rural Health Care 6 of 6
  • Health Care Reform
    • $500 billion cut in Medicare
    • $500 billion penalties and fraud recovery
  • The State Medicaid program will take the brunt of cuts
  • Cuts will translate to local unfunded mandates and loss of local subsidy
  • Major expansion of Medicaid while ICTF and UPL go away and EMTALA, “prudent lay person” language, and “meaningful use” language will dictate

ANALYSIS

Posted: August 2, 2010 - 12:19am  |  Updated: August 2, 2010 - 3:19am

By Walter C. Jones

ATLANTA - The makeup of the ballot shows how unusual this election is and provides evidence of how much Georgia is changing.

For one thing, it's already clear that South Georgia has lost much of its influence. The remaining candidates for U.S. Senate and governor are all from above the Gnat Line.

Veteran politicians from below the line saw their careers and hopes sputter as the primary returns were counted July 20, including Democrats Dubose Porter and David Poythress from Middle Georgia and Republicans Eric Johnson and Jeff Chapman from the Coast.

Another South Georgia giant fell in the Democratic primary for labor commissioner, former House Speaker Terry Coleman of Eastman to metro Atlantan Darryl Hicks, at least unless a challenge changes the decision.

The only candidates from below the Fall Line remaining on the statewide ballot are Democrats Ken Hodges of Albany, the nominee for attorney general, and J.B. Powell of Blythe near Augusta, the nominee for agriculture commissioner.

Carter: Budget math hard to figure

This new math is killing me!

Seriously, how can 4.7 percent and 12.7 percent average out to be 1.3 percent?

When it comes to the state of Georgia's budget, that's what a lot of financial gurus are saying actually has happened during the first two months of this fiscal year.

In July of this year, revenues were up 4.7 percent from a year ago and in August they were up 12.7 percent from the same time last year. So that means that revenues are up 8.6 percent from where they were for the same two months last year, right?

Not necessarily. After all, if we look closely at the numbers much of the gain in revenue this year is due to fewer individual income tax refunds being issued by the state than last year. Many will remember that overdue income tax refunds were processed and paid out in July and August of '09 and subtracted from that month's total tax collections.

This year the state was timely in paying out the refunds in May and June. Couple this with the number and amount of tax refunds are down this year and the number comparisons are understandably inaccurate.

Nevertheless, there is reason for celebration and optimism, albeit guarded. August marked the fourth month in a row for growth in tax collections after 17 straight months of declines.

So, if we are trending in a positive manner and revenues are increasing, why has the governor ordered all state agencies except the Department of Education to brace for a 4 percent cut in this year's budget and prepare for up to a 10 percent cut next year?

Remember is that the current fiscal year 2011 budget has a revenue growth of 5.09 percent built into it and if the actual growth thus far has only been 1.3 percent then we need to be prepared for a shortfall. The next few months should give us a clearer picture.

Another reason is that Gov. Sonny Perdue is being conservative so that the next governor won't immediately have to order more cuts.

But the overriding factor in the 4 percent cut is to cover the shortfall of $140 million in the federal Medicaid assistance funding percentages (FMAP) that Congress failed to approve late last month.

Medicaid is the government's health insurance program for the poor that is primarily funded by federal matching funds drawn down with state dollars. It is the fastest growing entitlement program in government, as states have expanded eligibility and benefits.

Unlike other states, Georgia has been fiscally responsible in managing Medicaid. We spend $6,000 per person in poverty on Medicaid. New York spends $18,000 per person. Only 18 percent of Georgians are on Medicaid as opposed to 26 percent in New York. Unfortunately, federal funding allows states that spend more on Medicaid to receive more matching funds, leaving states like Georgia holding the bag. For instance, while Georgia will receive about $240 million in FMAP from this latest approval, New York will receive $2.4 billion.

The 10 percent budget cut preparation that Perdue has ordered for FY '12 is in anticipation of a $1.8 to $2 billion shortfall that is expected due to slow revenue growth as well as the loss of federal one-time stimulus funds.
