One of the poorer scores is that of “days stay” where we are at about 6 and the goal set by the government (what is affectionately called “Obamacare”, otherwise officially known as the Patient Protection and Affordability Act) is a little over 4. JeffThe experience the hospital is having with patients covered by "Obamacare" might change after October 1, 2013. The current (emergency, if you will) PCIP was added onto the ACA so that those with pre-existing conditions could get coverage right away instead of having to wait until the more open enrollment which starts in October. Thus, your hospital's experience might be due to the sicker patients getting coverage earlier. However, as the population of covereds gets younger, those who need hospitalization may bring that 6 days down just because of the volume of covereds.Just a thoughtPoz
