Reservation Hospitals Could Be Privatized
Wednesday, 27 April 2016 12:15
The management of an embattled hospital on the Rosebud Indian Reservation could be privatized under a proposal from the federal agency responsible for the facility. The Indian Health Service is suggesting the privatization as part of a plan to significantly improve the hospital's quality of care. The agency and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have until Friday to reach a last-chance remediation agreement. Without an agreement, the hospital won't be allowed to bill the government for services provided to Medicare- and Medicaid-eligible patients after May 16. Leadership from both agencies discussed a draft of the agreement with tribal leaders Tuesday. The proposed privatization comes in addition to agency's ongoing effort to find a third party to manage the facility's shuttered emergency department.
