With such an incredibly impressive Alabama Hospital Net Asset percentage increase, a key beneficiary of this will be Alabama citizens who have elected or will be electing to buy health insurance on the Health Insurance Exchange. This superb Net Asset growth has given and will continue to give these Alabama Hospitals the financial flexibility to moderate their pricing for hospital and other health care procedures in their negotiations with health insurance companies which ultimately determines what insurance premium prices are set at by health insurance companies on the Health Insurance Exchange.
