"News & Issues" piece on a new analysis of Medicare records, which shows that Maine hospitals have more cash than their counterparts in the rest of the country, particularly urban New England. According to Stuart Altman, a Brandeis University health economist who spoke at a healthcare forum in South Portland last week, Maine hospitals take in 8 percent more money than their expenses, on average. The national average is 4.9 percent, while Massachusetts hospitals realized just a 0.5 percent margin. Altman's research is based on data from Med-PAC, the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, where he used to work.
