Cardinal Health understands that as a Safety Net hospital your community commitment comes at a cost. Many Safety Net Hospitals experience increased expenses associated with providing care for the uninsured.
As a result of capped Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements and the rise of uninsured patients, hospitals have high drug costs and a financial deficit. The 340B Discount Drug Program and the Patient Assistance Program (PAP) were created to help hospitals recover costs associated with servicing uninsured patients.
Cardinal Health offers software solutions to help Safety Net Hospitals reduce drug cost while continuing to extend health services to the community.
