IHA Statement on Passage of HB 1004

“As passed by the Senate, HB 1004 continues the brazen targeting of just a handful of hospitals while accountability for Indiana’s dominant insurers has been abandoned. There must be equal accountability across the entire health care sector, or we will see harmful, unintended consequences. IHA and member systems committed earlier in the session to achieve national averages in pricing, and we have provided many ideas throughout session on how to improve the legislation. We stand committed to finding the appropriate way to reduce health care costs in a sustainable manner, but there can be no long-term solution without raising low Medicaid payments and addressing how poorly insurance companies reimburse Hoosier doctors.”
