With the arrival of a new governor and the start of a new legislative session, the Safety-Net Association of Pennsylvania (SNAP) has prepared a series of four papers for leaders of the new Wolf administration and legislative and committee leaders and staff.
- the distinct patients safety-net hospitals serve
- inadequate payments for Medicaid services
- the large numbers of uninsured and underinsured patients safety-net hospitals serve
- threats to vital state Medicaid supplemental payments, such as Medicaid disproportionate share payments (Medicaid DSH
- continuing change and reform in the health care system, including the delivery of care and how safety-net hospitals are paid for their services
The first paper, “What is SNAP?”, was an introduction to the Safety-Net Association of Pennsylvania: what safety-net hospitals are, where they are located, whom they serve, and how they differ from other acute-care hospitals in the state.
