Tenet Healthcare Dismisses Garden Grove Hospital Worker Rally as Contract Negotiating Ploy
A few weeks ago, we asked several Orange County insurance brokers, managed healthcare executives and others for their thoughts about health reform plans floating in Sacramento. The competing plans from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Democratic leaders of the Legislature prompted more comment than we were able to fit in our recent Healthcare special report. Here are some of the other views we got.
Paul Keckley, executive director of the Deloitte Center for Healthcare Solutions, a unit of Deloitte & Touche, called Schwarzenegger’s proposal “among the most far-reaching of any plan offered in the U.S.”
On the flip side, Keckley said Stay Healthy California includes a pair of possible threats—the 85% spending mandate, which he said “will inevitably reduce operating margins and profits for plans accustomed to administrative costs above 20%.”
