Prior to this year, says Chandler's Dr. Michael Karpf, "we were getting paid 10 cents on the dollar" serving low-income patients. "Now we are getting 40 cents on the dollar, so the cost of care for these people isn't totally covered, but there is a lot more reimbursement. It means we are having very strong bottom lines in the hospital."
The financial transformation, he says, has been fueled by the state's expansion of Medicaid.

Karpf, University of Kentucky executive vice president for health affairs and head of the school's Chandler Hospital, agrees the Medicaid expansion is having a positive impact.
In the long term, however, Karpf predicts the current strong financial performance of hospitals fueled by the Medicaid expansion won't last. After 2017, he said, Kentucky will be hard-pressed to pay its amount for the expansion.
...
With a fixed budget for Medicaid, Karpf anticipates the state will push "for decreased utilization and for providers to take more risk and more responsibility for utilization."
That means reducing inpatient care and supporting fewer hospitals, he added. In the long run, he predicted, some small rural hospitals may close as the state's portion of Medicaid reimbursements fails to keep pace with the higher volume of patients.
Karpf favors Medicaid expansion, but says he would have delayed it until greater efficiencies in hospital utilization were in place.

Michael Karpf, M.D. Dr. Karpf is the executive vice president for health affairs at the University of Kentucky. "To be recognized by the Makenna Foundation is especially meaningful to me as the foundation is a dedicated partner in health care for our children. When I came to Kentucky, our children's hospital was not staffed or equipped to take care of a significant number of health problems children in our Commonwealth experience. It has been one of my top priorities to make sure we can offer Kentucky's children all the care they need." - Michael Karpf, M.D.

Michael Karpf calls a "perverse motivation.""If they cut the particular reimbursement, and purchase from you $1,000 for a $10,500 device, then precisely what we'll have to do will be see if we can in reality do it on an in-patient foundation; where the reimbursement might be better," said Dr. Karpf, director with the UCLA Medical Center.
