US government to reimburse 666 million dollars to 667 hospitals

A Medicare reimbursement lawsuit has resulted in a decision to pay out $666 million to 667 hospitals.

The suit was brought on the basis of changes in Medicare reimbursement policies dating to the Reagan administration in 1986 involving disproportionate-share payments.

Among the hospitals there are two Kansas City region's safety-net hospitals: TMC-Hospital Hill will receive about $1.1, and the University of Kansas Hospital expects to get $500,000.
