Episode 11: Medicaid’s Role in the Hospital and Healthcare Market
Medicaid plays a central role in our healthcare system. It provides health and long-term care coverage to millions of low income children, pregnant women, adults, seniors, and individuals with disabilities. It also finances nearly a fifth of all personal health care spending in the U.S., providing significant financing for hospitals, physicians and many other roles in the health care sector. InsideOut host Mike Alkire, President of Premier Inc., speaks to Matt Salo, Executive Director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors, about the program’s crucial role and future in America’s health care system.
