HB307 seeks to impose “fees” on hospitals and others to….
…be used to obtain federal financial participation for medical assistance payments under Medicaid
Americans For Prosperity is opposed to the bill and will testify against it this week.
This tax will be paid by Georgians who buy their own health insurance, and Georgia’s small businesses. The same bill wants to tax hospitals a “provider fee”- that means insured and self pay patients pay even more for a hospital stay. Americans For Prosperity GA plans to testify in opposition to this new tax at the subcommittee hearing Wednesday afternoon and welcomes your participation- contact AFPGA for details – [email protected].
I’m don’t claim to be an expert on health care and it’s funding but imposing extra fees or taxes on hospitals and by extension patients is not the way to go.
