State letting
hospitals fail
In the last month, four more
Mississippi hospitals have filed for
bankruptcy — in Magee, Bates-
ville, Amory and Clarksdale. This
is just the latest in a list of dozens of
Mississippi rural hospitals that are
either closing, filing for bankruptcy
or, like Greenwood Leflore Hospi-
tal, becoming steadily unprofitable.
Local hospitals have been a
mainstay of small towns and cities
in Mississippi, often the largest
employer in the area and a source
of great community pride and sup-
port. It is a sad day to watch their
slow destruction.
The cause of this is simple:
Mississippi, like 16 other Repub-
lican-dominated states, continues
to turn down federal money for
Medicaid expansion, thus deny-
ing coverage for 167,000 working
poor. The Medicaid expansion
is supposed to cover cutbacks in
federal hospital reimbursements
for uncompensated care, but in
states that have turned down the
federal money, the hospitals are out
of luck.
Bear in mind the feds are paying
for nearly all the money required
to expand Medicaid. Mississippi
