The University of Virginia Medical Center and other so-called safety net hospitals are bracing for more uninsured patients this year and financial losses starting in 2016 as the prospects of Medicaid expansion fade.

Engelhard, assistant professor of health policy analysis at UVa’s School of Medicine.
