Hospitals push HHS on Obamacare subsidies via charity

The Hill, April 29, 2014
The American Hospital Association (AHA) is asking the Obama administration to clearly state its support for charities subsidizing medical expenses for low-income people on ObamaCare's exchanges. In a letter Monday, the AHA and the Catholic Health Association (CHA) urged the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to confirm that they do not discourage the subsidies by hospital-based foundations and other charitable groups. "The AHA, CHA and our members will continue to work to enable as many Americans as possible to obtain healthcare coverage," the groups wrote to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. "The uncertainty created by HHS's actions is limiting our ability to do so."
