Statewide tour will include commission meetings in Tampa, Jacksonville and Miami

 TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott announced the kick off of the Commission on Healthcare and Hospital Funding’s Spotlight Transparency Tour.  Following the Commission’s meeting next week in Tallahassee, the tour will start in Tampa, followed by stops in Jacksonville and Miami to compare the hospitals in those regions and how to make them more transparent and efficient for the taxpayers that support them.

During each stop on the tour, the Commission will invite the lowest and highest performing hospitals to present detailed information on their costs, profits and patient outcomes that all affect the level of taxpayer support to each institution.

In order to help the Commission examine profits of hospitals, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) released the below chart which outlines a breakdown of hospital profits and potential changes in revenue under AHCA’s proposed changes submitted to CMS on new LIP funding and Medicaid rates.
