11. this shouldn't have anything to do with her son

I am by no means an ACA expert, but I'm pretty sure this provision is meant as a punishment for hospitals who, on a regular basis, don't give patients proper care, send them home early to free up the bedspace, and then have to readmit because the patient got sick again. An example would be someone with pneumonia who was treated quickly, rushed home and relapsed. Not someone born with a congenital defect.

It's widely known that those with little to no insurance or wealth don't get the same level of care as those with full coverage or personal fortunes. This provision is to punish hospitals who continue this practice or provide subpar care on a regular basis.
