Don Faulk, CEO of the Medical Center of Central Georgia, examined the Supreme Court's ruling on the Affordable Care Act, but he wasn't exactly jumping for joy over it.
He said it was a step in the right direction but that it really doesn't hit what would truly keep health care costs down.
"I'm afraid that nothing is going to be happening down there where it really counts, which is where the money is consumed," he added.
But if the act is repealed, he asks, what will happen on the front line.
He said 2,000 to 3,000 people a year enter the Medical Center without insurance, and that costs close to $100 million a year.
Charles Briscoe, CEO of Coliseum Health System, could not be reached for comment.
But he released a statement that said: "We will continue to work with patients, payors and the government to ensure a smooth transition as the provisions of the law are enacted. We are pleased that millions of Americans will have coverage for better access to vital medical services, preventive care and acute care."
