Protect Hospital Employees and Patients

Welcome to the HARI Member Portal. You will be required to log in with your username and password to access data, reports and resources only available to members and affiliate members.

Urge your legislators to protect hospital employees and patients by enacting a state budget that increases hospital Medicaid payments and funding to care for our most vulnerable citizens.
The State has not increased hospital Medicaid rates since 2013 and some years payments have been reduced. Meanwhile, the cost of providing care is increasing, hospitals are facing uncertainty at the federal level, and the State has set limits on payments from commercial insurers. ​

Hospitals are transforming the way healthcare is delivered in their communities, working with other providers and community leaders to build a continuum of care to make sure every individual gets the right care at the right time in the right setting. To continue this transformation, and to provide patients with the access to care they need and expect, hospitals need a supportive and modernized public policy environment.

HARI worked with state leaders during the 2017 General Assembly session to implement policy that will advance this goal.  Read More
