The health care industry, known for its dynamics and constant change, lived up to its reputation throughout 1987 and early 1988. Continuing concern for the cost of hospital and physician services, availability of adequate health care services for the elderly, and the impact of the AIDS virus on health care delivery contributed to make this period a tumultuous one for the health care industry nationwide. Virginia was not spared the tumult. This article focuses on key legislative, regulatory, and judicial events of the past year, and evaluates their impact on the business of providing health care in the Commonwealth.
