Survey: Medicaid-Level Rates Could Cripple Health Insurance Exchanges

National Survey of Hospital Executives Reveals Payor Talks Off to a Bad Start

WEBWIRE – Wednesday, November 14, 2012

NASHVILLE, TN – With the results of the presidential election and the fate of state health insurance exchanges decided, a new national survey of hospital executives on the subject finds that talks between providers and payors are already off to a rocky start.
Of the 112 hospital executives surveyed, 62 percent said they have begun conversations with payors about participation in the exchanges, 54 percent said those conversations included a discussion of reimbursement rates, and 48 percent of those conversations are “fair to poor.”
The survey, commissioned by ReviveHealth and conducted by Catalyst Healthcare Research, also revealed that respondents – hospital executives responsible for negotiating contracts with health insurance carriers – are very concerned about the rates being offered to care for people who buy their health benefits through an exchange.
