Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas reported uncompensated care of $86.5 million. Methodist Dallas Medical Center reported $154.7 million.

Texas Hospitals Want Legislators To Tackle Uninsured, Expand Health Care

Texas hospitals want legislators to solve a pressing problem: the large numbers of uninsured residents in the state, and the billions of dollars hospitals lose annually treating them. Efforts to cover these Texans failed in the last legislative session, but there’s a new push to try again. There already is a way to help about [...]
