Although ERAs are very attentive to cost issues, price does not appear to be the main factor influencing their hospital selection. Three of these plans were initially supported by hospitals and therefore used these facilities for hospitalization. These hospitals provided a favourable economic environment because they shared the financial risk of the plan, but no tenders for hospital services had been initiated and until recently none of these plans were considering changing hospital affiliation. The plan, which recently broke with its Kofounding Hospital, did so due to significant changes in hospital ownership. It has launched a tendering process between several hospitals for the new contract. With nearly a quarter of the population enrolled in health care organizations (HMOs), the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area offers a unique opportunity for studies that address the impact of prepaid health plans on the health market. This study examines one aspect of this market; Discounts granted by HMOs for hospital hospital service.

Structured interviews with the 7 MH and 30 hospitals in the Twin Cities territory dealt with three areas of study: (1) the nature of discount contracts between hospitals and MHs, (2) the role of each party in the launch of contracts and (3) the factors that influence contracting. Three of the 1000,000,000 PERSONs have close ties to some hospitals. The Nicollet-Eitel HMO is a joint development of Eitel Hospital and Nicollet Clinic, a nearby multi-specialist practice for medical groups. Initially, all inseminated Nicollet-Eitel patients were hospitalized at Eitel Hospital, but as the plan was marketed to a larger population and registration increased, satellite clinics developed and the plan began to use other hospitals. Coordinated Health Care (formerly Ramsey`s Health Plan) is closely linked to St. Paul-Ramsey Medical Center, a county hospital with close ties to the university. Their doctors are mainly collaborators at St Paul-Ramsey Medical Centre (SPRMC). Initially, almost all HMO hospitalized patients were treated with SPRMC. However, over the past two years, the plan has expanded to three offsite group practices and, as a result, they have begun to deploy patients to hospitals close to these practices. Share Health Plan, an HMO group model, was originally linked to the Samaritan Hospital.

She now works independently of her foundation hospital and uses other hospitals for her hospital services.

General hospital care is defined as short-term pain control or acute or chronic symptom management provided either by the hospice in its own hospital or by an agreement with a hospital or long-term care centre (if such care is not possible in the hospice). When a hospice is unable to provide general hospital care in its own hospital, the hospice must complete an institution that meets all the following requirements of PSP members: a hospice has several important reflections to conduct in the institution with a hospital or a qualified care centre for general hospital care for inpatients.
