Abstract

This study examines how recent trends toward concentration within the hospital industry among hospital chains and the increase in for-profit ownership affects access to affordable healthcare in Los Angeles. Specifically, it investigates the impact of hospital concentration on:
  • Costs and revenues, which affects the affordability of employer-provided coverage for those that have it, and

  • The competitive position of the public hospitals, which have traditionally provided a safety net to the uninsured and underinsured.
