Q: Will healthcare reform affect healthcare workers?
Expanded insurance coverage means more people can afford to seek medical care. Hospitals and doctors’ offices may need to hire more healthcare workers to meet patient demand. In addition, hospitals trying new coordinated care models may need to hire more staff. Expanding staff allows these facilities to ensure that patients obtain the highest quality of care and services. Hospitals with the highest quality of care can be reimbursed at higher rates.
