Ep. 31 - Money Money

This week on the FLATLINING Podcast, Matthew and Ron discuss some healthcare money news. The State of New York now has a law that prohibits home liens and wage garnishing to recoup medical debt. What does that mean for providers and hospitals? And some conservatives are frustrated about $55 million being spent to reduce smoking. Ron thinks this is actually a good investment and will explain why.

Matthew and Ron also take a look at some updates to previous stories they broke down on the FLATLINING Podcast including new numbers about cyber attacks in healthcare and more hospitals charging for MyChart messages.
