Public policies to increase hospital competition, improve quality of inpatient care and lower health care costs

Chapter 6 of The Illinois Report 2013

This report provides an assessment of three state policies that are targeted at the hospital industry in Illinois. The authors take a close look at tax exemptions for not-for-profit hospitals, the Medicaid hospital assessment program, and the Certificate of Need laws. The authors discuss strategies to alter these policies in a way that could lower costs and create a more competitive, higher quality hospital industry.
