Finance & Reimbursement

About Finance & Reimbursement

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, many California hospitals’ financial situations were challenging — nearly 40% operated in the red. Hospitals strive to contain costs while delivering essential care to their communities in the most cost-effective manner. CHA provides direction to hospitals on the diverse issues that affect their financial performance, and advocates for them to ensure that much-needed programs retain their funding. In addition, CHA offers tools such as DataSuite to help hospitals analyze government reimbursement changes, and the potential impact of regulatory and legislative actions on hospitals.
