ResProg Webinar: Uncompensated Care Provision and the Implementation of Population Health Improvement Strategies



The Affordable Care Act (ACA), along with Medicaid expansion, was expected to reduce the rising burden on hospitals from uncompensated care provision to uninsured people while creating new resources and incentives for hospitals to contribute to disease prevention and health promotion activities. By examining the association between area-level hospital uncompensated care provision and hospital contributions to public health activities for the period 2006-2016, this study aims to lend evidence to the hypothesis that reducing uncompensated care costs might enable hospitals to re-allocate resources for population health improvement.
