In a related story on the topic of Medicaid expansion, State Senator Dennis Pyle of Hiawatha Saturday addressed the issue during the Legislative Forum in Marysville. Referencing a recent closure at Fort Scott, and ongoing challenges in Brown County at both the Hiawatha and Horton hospitals, Pyle said that these were mostly related to poor management. He discounted the potential impact of a 2% increase in the Medicare reimbursement rate, cautioning that a large part of health care problems was greatly aggravated by the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. Pyle expressed concern with significant contributions in uncompensated care annually provided by local emergency rooms, due to patients’ inability to pay for services, or even manage higher deductibles fort those with insurance. He said that the answer to fixing a government created problem is not in creating additional government programs.
