  2. MORE: Price Confirmed as HHS Secretary

    Newly elected HHS Secretary Tom Price likely will spend his first few days focusing on efforts to stabilize the individual health insurance market as Republicans work to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Following the pattern of strictly party-line votes on two previous nominees — Attorney General-designate Sen. Jeff Sessions and Betsy DeVos for Education secretary — the former congressman from Georgia was approved early Friday on a 52-47 vote.

    Price has to figure out how to keep insurers in the market for 2018 to avoid a meltdown that could leave 20 million people without coverage. Insurance industry leaders say they need greater certainty about market rules before they decide this spring whether to offer plans and how to price them.

    Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is counting on the staunchly conservative former orthopedic surgeon to lead the effort to draft an ACA replacement plan, while also taking steps to dismantle the law through administrative measures.

  3. Price Backs Balance Billing for Medicare Patients

    HHS Secretary Tom Price is backing legislation that will allow physicians to bill seniors for charges that are more than the rates approved by Medicare. He claims the move would draw more physicians to enroll in the program. In correspondence between Price and the Senate Finance Committee provided exclusively to Modern Healthcare, Price said he supports enacting such a law, which several physician groups said could backfire.

    Current law does not allow physicians to bill patients more than the Medicare payment rate for any service. But in response to a query from Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) during his confirmation process, Price said he favored changing the law to let doctors recoup unreimbursed Medicare costs, a practice known as balance billing. Price, a retired orthopedic surgeon, said balance billing would entice more providers to work with Medicare beneficiaries. Patients typically get “surprise” bills when a physician practice operating inside a hospital isn’t part of an insurer’s network. It has been happening more frequently in recent years, as insurers select fewer providers for their networks to keep premiums down. Several states have passed measures to prevent the practice.
