An NAUH study finds that private, non-profit urban safety-net hospitals care for more low-income and uninsured patients and are in worse financial condition than any other type of private hospital in the U.S. today. Among the patients these hospitals serve are especially large numbers of Medicaid recipients and low-income elderly individuals who cannot afford their Medicare co-pays and deductibles. This poses a great financial challenge to urban safety-net hospitals, which collectively have a negative operating margin: this means that as a group, their expenses for caring for all of their patients are greater than the payments they receive for caring for those patients.
