I get A String is Required here with this formula - can anyone help me identify my problem??
 
//This formula checks to see if DRG expected reimbursement is empty, possibly indicating a Medicaid patient
if IsNull ({HSP_ACCOUNT.DRG_EXPECTED_REIMB}) then "Medicaid"

//If the DRG expected reimbursement is provided, display the value stored in the DRG Expected Reimbursement field

else {HSP_ACCOUNT.DRG_EXPECTED_REIMB}

Thanks!!

I am assuming that {HSP_ACCOUNT.DRG_EXPECTED_REIMB} is not a string.  The results from a if statement have to be the same data type.  So the only solution is to convert {HSP_ACCOUNT.DRG_EXPECTED_REIMB} to a string (i.e., totext({HSP_ACCOUNT.DRG_EXPECTED_REIMB}) )
