According to the American Hospital Association, the margins of Medicare and Medicaid are getting narrowed down due to low payments. The centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services evaluate and publish hospital performance rating data publicly which can be publicly used while selecting a provider. These factors result in leaving almost no funds left from the hospital’s providing care costs and the reimbursement they receive from private payers. In 2014, the Medicare patient admission payment was increased by 0.5%, and the exit payment was increased by 1.8%. This, therefore, put the burden of rising healthcare costs on providers, with the new regulations like Medicare shifting to the value-based system through its Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and through Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) schemes. Hospitals run on the principles of costs minimisation while also trying to improve their standards.
