Abstract

It is highly likely that COVID-19 will result in a drain on hospitals financial resources, not the least of which being cash. Not all hospitals are financially prepared for any enduring loss of cash, with hospitals in few states being well prepared. Those states that have experienced early cases of COVID-19 are less well prepared financially. Several policy options merit consideration.
