GREENVILLE, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The Mississippi Legislature's decision to extend Medicaid will save Delta Regional Medical Center in Greenville about $7 million.

When federal reductions hit starting Oct. 1, the Greenville hospital is anticipating a revenue loss of more than $3.9 million.

He says the hospitals must account for funds lost to the across-the-board federal budget reductions known as the sequester.

He says there also will reductions in Medicare reimbursements and payments hospitals get for uncompensated care to those unable to pay.

Harvey says the hospital will have to balance the reductions in revenue with equal reductions to expenses.
