Question and answer
Why would it be difficult for a small community hospital or a practicing physician to survive in today’s health care climate?
the viablity of any business (and hospitals ad Dr.offices are businesses) depends on being able to make more money than you spend. [ Hospitals require huge amounts of money to get set up - the building, utilties, phone, furniture, lab machines and necessary equipmnt, X-ray, CAT scan, etc. Drs. offices need a lot of the same things, just on a smaller scale. Also, both need a lot of insurance,
which is extremely expensive - and they cannot operate withoutit. If there are not enough customers (patients) that will pay their bills, then the business cannot pay it's bills either. If Drs and hospitals have to wait long- often months- to be paid by Insurance, how can they make it? Refer to: ]

Thank you Deb. I was about to cite the source when i found that it was not available (i dont know why) you can see i have already written "refer to" there but the link was not available then.
It seems there are more problems nowadays to Weegy. From now and then the service is not available and very soon i would receive email telling me i could not answer the question. Sometimes the screen was just frozen and i could not answer the question after i accept it. You have the same experience?
