Hospital Payment Sources (PPACA, commercial insurance, and traditional Medicare).

I’m working on a management discussion question and need an explanation to help me understand better.

Hospitals, outpatient centers, and free-standing surgical centers are dependent on many funding sources to pay for their services.

  • Compare and contrast approval/payment from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commercial insurance, and the traditional Medicare program (not a Medicare health maintenance organization [HMO]) available to these types of facilities.
  • How do the different funding types impact the strategic management of the facility?
  • Do not define the PPACA and do not discuss or include the Medicare Advantage Plan.
