Medical center headed for a financial bind

Posted:

Urbana – Medicare payments to Presence Covenant Medical Center in Urbana could be interrupted after July 30th.

 

The hospital violated a federal regulation guaranteeing access to emergency care, regardless of the patient's ability to pay.

 

A government spokesperson says although the hospital has a plan to correct the problem they are implementing it before those payments can be reinstated.
