While criticized for their high costs, HBNFs have been praised for their willingness to care for hard-to-place residents, such as those who are ventilator dependent (Coll 1986), a phenomenon that may extend to the care of PWA/H.
Data on California HBNFs were obtained from the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) Annual Survey of Hospitals and the OSHPD Annual Hospital Financial Disclosure Report, covering calendar year 1990 and fiscal year 1990, respectively.
Given the high cost of HBNFs (Lehrman 1994) and their relative willingness to provide HIV/AIDS care, incentives for such facilities-either specifically targeted at the provision of HIV/AIDS services or subject to more subtle forms of inducement, such as cost-based reimbursement-should be reviewed with particular care.
