“A red flag for hospitals in a red state” is how STAT’s D.C. Diagnosis tags the Hoosier State fight, where “hospitals are in trouble in Indiana. The Republican-state legislature is considering an unprecedented step to lower hospital costs in the state: price controls” by penalizing nonprofit hospitals that charge more than 260% of Medicare rates. STAT notes that Indiana “is a hotbed of innovation on hospital pricing policy,” driven by former Bush 43 White House economist and former Indiana Republican Party chair Al Hubbard and supported by Laura Arnold and John Arnold.
