CMS Final Rule Brings Transparency to Healthcare Industry

Healthcare Transparency

By Health Capital Consultants, LLC

On October 29, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the Transparency in Coverage final rule. This long-anticipated final rule stems from President Donald Trump’s June 2019 executive order on “Improving Price and Quality Transparency” and builds upon the hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) price transparency requirements released in November 2019.

 

These requirements came under fire in a lawsuit filed by the American Hospital Association (AHA), Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), Children’s Hospital Association (CHA), and Federation of American Hospitals (FAH), against the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); the requirements were upheld by the courts in June 2020 and the lawsuit is being appealed by the plaintiffs.

WHAT IS COMMON STOCK “PAR” VALUE?

WHAT IS COMMON STOCK “PAR” VALUE?

Courtsey: https://lnkd.in/eBf-4vY
DHEF: https://lnkd.in/dqdbWM9

DEFINITION:

For common stock, the value on the books of the corporation. It has little to do with market value or even the original price of shares at first issuance. The difference between par and the price at first issuance is carried on the books of a corporation as “paid-in capital” or “capital surplus.”

Par value for preferred stocks is also liquidating value and the value on which dividends (expressed as a percentage) are paid, generally $100 per share.

2021 Prescription Drug Payment Model from HHS

Administration Announces Prescription Drug Payment Model
***
By staff reporters
***
HHS Secretary Alex Azar has announced a drug payment model through the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services that will lower Medicare Part B payments for certain drugs to the lowest price for similar countries and save American taxpayers and beneficiaries more than $85 billion over seven years.
***
***
Starting in January, the model, known as the Most Favored Nation (MFN) Model, will test an innovative way for Medicare to pay no more for high cost, physician-administered Medicare Part B drugs than the lowest price charged in other similar countries.
***
Following the President’s recent Executive Orders to lower drug prices and improve access to life-saving medications, the MFN Model will protect current beneficiary access to Medicare Part B drugs, make them more affordable, and address the disparity of drug costs between the U.S. and other countries.

The “Rules of 72, 78 and 115”

INTEREST RATES

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA

RULE 72

Use the rule of 72 to calculate how long it would take an investment to double. The rule of 72 is that an investment that earns 10 percent interest will double in 7.2 years. Use this as a starting point for calculating various interest rates and lengths of time, by dividing the number 72 by your interest rate.

For instance, if you are investing at a more conservative rate of 5 percent, you’d divide 72 by 5 for a total of 15 years (rounded up) for your money to double.

RULE 78 VIDEO

Link: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=rule+78&view=detail&mid=83D794CB83313B56855583D794CB83313B568555&FORM=VIRE

RULE 115

To figure out how long it would take your money to triple, use 115 instead of 72. So at an interest rate of 3 percent, it would take 38 years (115/3), for your initial amount to triple.

PATTERNS OF MEDICAL RISKS

PATTERNS OF PRACTICE RISKS

One of the next big areas of risk that will surface in the near future is the Pattern of Practice Risk.

Pattern of Practice refers to the way that a particular physician practices medicine. With computers, eHRs, standardized diagnosis and treatment codes, and the budgetary restraints inherent in medical practice, it is becoming easy to analyze a physician’s method of practice.

The treatment and diagnosis codes that a physician uses and submits to third party payers can be quantified and compared colleagues in the same or similar specialties. Statistical outliers can be identified. These outliers will then be further audited and required to justify their treatments. If no rational basis exists for the statistical differences, the outlier may find himself the subject of a fraud investigation.

New C-Suite Title Innovations

Who’s Reaching the C-suite in 2020?

A new analysis by LinkedIn’s Economic Graph team shows the fastest-growing “chief” titles of this year.

Chief diversity officer tops the list: Hiring for the title has grown about 84% as a proportion of total C-suite hires this year, relative to 2019’s share. While that’s the fastest expansion of any C-suite job this year, the title itself is still relatively uncommon in corporate America, accounting for less than half of 1% of all C-suite hires.

Chief growth officers — which often combine oversight of marketing, strategy and other functions — have also been in high demand. The title has been popular for a long time among consumer products companies, but it’s now popping up more often at tech companies.

Others on the list include chief underwriting officer (+43%) and chief revenue officer (+29%), as well as roles focused on people and talent. Regardless of the specialty, there’s widespread agreement that when a specific domain becomes important enough to win a spot in the C-suite, that’s a powerful signal about a company’s overall priorities.

Tele-Medicine Valuation and Reimbursement

***
By Health Capital Consultants, LLC
***
The second installment in this five-part Health Capital Topics series on the valuation of telemedicine will focus on the reimbursement environment for telemedicine.

Telemedicine is reimbursed based on the services provided through this medium and includes many restrictions on where, how, and by whom services can be conducted. The first installment in this series introduced telemedicine and its increasing importance to, and popularity among, providers and patients. It also discussed the current and future challenges related to telemedicine, many of which hinge upon reimbursement restrictions and regulations. (Read more…)

WHAT IS A CLOSED-END MUTUAL FUND

ON OPEN AND CLOSED MUTUAL FUNDS

By staff reporters

A closed-end fund (CEF) or closed-ended fund is a collective investment model based on issuing a fixed number of shares which are not redeemable from the fund.

Unlike open-end funds, new shares in a closed-end fund are not created by managers to meet demand from investors. Instead, the shares can be purchased and sold only in the market, which is the original design of the mutual fund, which predates open-end mutual funds but offers the same actively-managed pooled investments.

Diwali, Deepavali or Dipavali

By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA

Diwali, Deepavali or Dipavali is the Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere.

One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolises the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance”.

During the celebration, temples, homes, shops and office buildings are brightly illuminated. The preparations, and rituals, for the festival typically last five days, with the climax occurring on the third day coinciding with the darkest night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika.

In the Gregorian calendar, the festival generally falls between mid-October and mid-November.

A Veteran’s Suicide in Front of VA Clinic

Self Immolation

[By staff reporters]

A veteran committed suicide by setting himself on fire in front of a New Jersey VA clinic after staff at the clinic repeatedly failed to ensure he received adequate mental health care, an investigation of the death found.

Department of Veterans Affairs staff canceled an appointment Charles Ingram had in fall 2015 because a provider was unavailable, didn’t follow up to reschedule, and when he walked into the clinic to ask for an appointment, they didn’t schedule it until three months later, the VA inspector general found.

Ingram, a 51-year-old Gulf War veteran, had been approved to receive treatment at a non-VA facility, but no one at VA contacted him or scheduled the appointment.

McCarran–Ferguson Act and Domestic Health Insurance

The McCarran–Ferguson Act

By Howard Green MD

The McCarran–Ferguson Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 1011-1015, is a United States federal law that exempts the business of insurance from most federal regulation, including federal antitrust laws to a limited extent.
***
The McCarran–Ferguson Act was passed by the 79th Congress in 1945 after the Supreme Court ruled in United States v. South-Eastern Underwriters Association that the federal government could regulate insurance companies under the authority of the Commerce Clause in the U.S. Constitution and that the federal antitrust laws applied to the insurance industry.
-United States Federal Law

Ex-Dividends

WHAT IS THE “EX-DIVIDEND” STOCK DATE?
Courtesy: https://lnkd.in/eBf-4vY

DEFINITION: Occurs when dividends are declared by a company’s board of directors, they are payable on a certain date (“payable date”) to shareholders recorded on the company’s books as of a stated earlier date (“record date”).
DHEF: https://lnkd.in/dqdbWM9

Purchasers of the stock on or after the record date are not entitled to receive the recently declared dividend, so the ex-dividend date is the number of days it takes to settle a trade before the record date (currently three business days). A stock’s price on its ex-dividend date appears in the newspaper with an X beside it.

What is ADVERSE SELECTION in Health Insurance?

ADVERSE SELECTION:

By staff reporters

The tendency of people who are less than standard health insurance risks to seek or continue insurance to a greater extent than other individuals.  This so called “selection against the insurer”, or “anti-selection”, is a form of stacking the deck and is also found in the tendency of policy owners to take advantage of favorable options in health insurance or managed care contracts.

Or, a particular health plan, whether indemnity or managed care, is selected against by the enrollee, and thus an inequitable proportion of enrollees requiring more medical services are found in that plan.

Example:   Low enrollee out-of-pocket costs might lure those individuals requiring more health services into an HMO rather than an indemnity-plan because the former does not have a deductible.

Therefore, the HMO would have a greater proportion of less-healthy enrollees, thereby driving up costs and increasing financial risks. Also occurs with one of the following:

  1. When a premium doesn’t cover costs. Some populations, perhaps due to age or health status, have a great potential for high utilization.
  2. Some population parameter such as age (e.g., a much greater number of 65-year-olds or older to young population) that increases the potential for higher utilization and often increases costs above those covered by a payer’s capitation rate.

THOUGHTS ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN MEDICINE?

THOUGHTS ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN MEDICINE?
Courtesy: https://lnkd.in/eBf-4vY

Artificial Intelligence (AI), is intelligence demonstrated by machines, unlike the natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals.

Leading AI textbooks define the field as the study of “intelligent agents”: any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals.
LINK: https://lnkd.in/eWx3WjZ

Colloquially, the term “artificial intelligence” is often used to describe machines (or computers) that mimic “cognitive” functions that humans associate with the human mind, such as “learning” and “problem solving”.

QUERY: But, what about AI in medicine?
