ObamaCare: How Will We Repeal and Replace It?

RISE presented a four-person expert panel that delivered a powerful, jam-packed 90-minute program on this hot topic.  If you missed this one and have an interest in better understanding what is likely to happen, what is doable and what isn’t, then you should list to the recording of our webinar below.

Lisa DiSalvo began with a thorough and compelling outline of proposals on policy currently under consideration, competing for favor in the jockeying process now underway in the new administration in Washington, D.C.  Following her presentation was Richard Lieberman analyzing the political context and outlook for solving the challenge posed by the incoming administration that wishes to achieve many of the same goals as ObamaCare while spinning their own preferences into the recipe. 

Sean Creighton tackled the daunting financial projections originating in the Congressional Budget Office, and helped us understand the intricate linkages and dynamic economic factors knitted together in the realities of our national health care economy.  His insights as a former CMS executive lent credibility to his observations and comments.  John Criswell brought it all home with the wrap-up analysis on the prospects for a sustainable and workable marketplace for individual and small group insurance coverage.  His sense of what the business side is going to tolerate, along with the demand features of a restructured marketplace, makes for sobering consideration.

Keep M.E.A.T. on Your List for a Healthy Audit

By Jeanmarie Loria, Advize Health, LLC If you’re reading this article, chances are you already know what HCC Coding is – but we’ll give you a refresher anyway. Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) and Risk Adjustment Coding is a CMS-mandated payment model. This model works to identify those with chronic and other serious illnesses and prescribes a risk factor score to each patient, taking into consideration their ailments and other demographics. With every payment model comes a specific set of audit and review requirements that must be met to maintain the integrity of the system, and this is where MEAT (Monitor, Evaluate, Assess/Address, Treat) comes in handy. In a face to face visit M.E.A.T. maybe found in the chief complaint, history of present illness, review of systems, physical exam, assessment and/or plan....

Getting It Right: True North in Healthcare Reform

The movement to repeal and replace "ObamaCare" created so much political noise that clear thinking has been hard to come by. The 2010 legislation that created the marketplace for individuals and small business (the Affordable Care Act or ACA), has almost evolved into a political Rorschach test. The more that politicized options and alternatives to repealing, replacing, or repairing it were discussed, the harder it was to put into focus the original problems the legislation was designed to address. Nevertheless, the rancorous divisions over what needs to happen to fix problems in the individual insurance market remain a distraction from the real issue at hand: the cost of healthcare weighing down the economy and what we need to do to fix it. With all the intense debates swirling around this topic, an impression emerges that “solving the ObamaCare issues” is something that must be accomplished as an isolated matter, discrete and independent of other problems. The heated debates concentrate on the mechanics and tactics required to solve the "uninsured problem", the "under-insured problem", and for some, the federal budget problems created by the subsidies for low-income enrollees in these plans. This single-issue mono-vision obscures a reality that must be addressed. This perspective completely misses the fact that something is going on that is far more corrosive to the wellbeing of all of us as consumers of health care, as taxpayers, and as a nation: something that overshadows the tug ‘o war over ObamaCare. The critical and overlooked issue is that health care expenditures in the U.S are at least twice as expensive as other nations, which consume so much of the national economy...

Quality measurement and risk adjustment regulations are increasing and the financial impact upon health plans is progressively driving accountability and influencing profitability through payments, penalties, and bonuses.
