This article reports on the move by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) in the U.S. to terminate its agreement with Anaheim General, a hospital based in California, on July 21, 2009. The termination of agreement is due to the failure of the hospital to comply with conditions of participation for a provider of hospital services. The termination means the hospital will lose about 150 million in Medicare and Medicaid funding.
