Health systems face the prospect of growing uncompensated care costs when the #ACA is repealed

I understand the financial considerations of seeking upfront payment for non-emergency procedures. Some important health issues are non-emergencies but, nevertheless, very important to address expeditiously. My concern would be that such practices may effectively devolve high deductible plans to catastrophic coverage plans. The result being a healthcare cast system where the "haves" and the "have nots" are stratified in their access to care. http://ift.tt/1VMjaZw
