Democrats now support a hospital tax - and the hospitals aren’t objecting, because of the way Federal law works on Medicaid (coverage for poor - Medicare is coverage for the elderly). When hospitals have these assessments put on them - that’s what they’re calling this hospital tax - they are eligible for more Federal Medicaid reimbursement. So, whatever they have to pay they’ll get back in Federal reimbursements (our tax dollars) so they have no problem supporting the hospital tax.
In the end, these extra costs will get passed onto us consumers by way of even bigger health care bills. This will also mean bigger health care costs for businesses due to higher premiums for both smaller businesses and for major employers.
