Parts of the Act may not be in effect. The provision sets out the Commission’s jurisdiction over different hospital facilities and entities they can set rates for. In addition to disclosing the general financial status of the rganization, the facility bears the burden to assure each purchaser of health care facility services that the total costs of all hospital services offered by or through a facility are reasonable, the aggregate rates of the facility are related reasonably to the aggregate costs of the facility, and rates are set equitably among all purchasers of services without undue discrimination. The Commission shall assess the underlying causes of hospital uncompensated care and make recommendations to the General Assembly on the most appropriate alternatives to reduce uncompensated care and assure the integrity of the payment system.
