On “Bundled” Medical Payments

Payor Savings Evidence?

New Evidence for Private Payor Savings Through Bundled Payments

A new RAND Corporation study on bundled payments in the private sector was published in the March 2021 issue of Health Affairs. The study analyzed data from over 2,000 procedures performed as part of a direct payment program by Carrum Health between 2016 and 2020, and found significant savings from this bundled payment program, without any significant changes in quality. This study adds important evidence to the argument in favor of bundled payments and is especially important because it examines the under-studied area of bundled payment models from commercial payment systems.

American Rescue Plan Act of 2021

Healthcare Provisions in the American Rescue Plan

By Health Capital Consultants, LLC

On March 11, 2021, President Joe Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). The law looks to alleviate the burden felt by the millions of people who lost their employer-sponsored health insurance over the first six months of the pandemic and assist the hardest-hit communities through the extension of the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) subsidies, expanding Medicaid coverage, increasing funding for behavioral health, ramping up COVID-19 vaccines and testing, providing financial relief for rural providers, and enacting other individual and healthcare system protections.

Malpractice Insurance “Policy Limits”

WHAT ARE “LIMITS” OF MALPRACTICE INSURANCE LIABILITY?

Courtesy: https://lnkd.in/eBf-4vY

HEALTH ECONOMICS DICTIONARY:

https://lnkd.in/dqdbWM9

DEFINITION: What the insurance company will pay on a doctor’s behalf in the event of a claim. If your limits of liability are “$1,000,000 / $3,000,000” it would mean that the insurance company would pay a maximum of $1 million per occurrence and $3 million per year for claims.

For further clarification, refer to the examples below and assume limits of liability of 1,000,000 / $3,000,000:

· In one year you have 4 lawsuits each for $800,000:
The insurance company pays $3,000,000 and you are responsible for $200,000.
· In one year you have 2 lawsuits each for $2,000,000:
The insurance company pays $2,000,000 ($1 million each) and you are responsible for $2,000,000 ($1 million each).
· In one year you have 9 lawsuits each for $20,000:
The insurance company would pay everything.

However, most states have minimum requirements for limits of liability should you have hospital privileges. And so your thoughts are appreciated.

An Op-Ed by a Healthcare Industry Thought Leader & Giant

New Years Resolutions 2021 [Repost]

By Nathan Kaufman • 1st Managing Director at Kaufman Strategic Advisors 

***

1. I will continue to verify any statements I make about the healthcare system by talking to physicians and operators with REAL-WORLD EXPERIENCE and not rely solely on statistical comparisons.

2. I will promote that there is a correlation between cost, quality, and access in today’s healthcare system. Those who believe health systems should approach anything close to Medicare breakeven advocate for low quality and significant service reductions.3. I will continue to promote the fact that whoever affiliates with the best doctors will win in the long run.

4. I will encourage my clients to avoid the attempt by payers and many industry desk jockeys (e.g., Rand Corp.) to commoditize healthcare delivery. The best doctors, services, and ultimately the best outcomes are not commodities; they come at a price.

5. I will not stand by and watch the payers, government, and the aforementioned academic knuckleheads destroy the hospital industry using the ‘value con’– they already destroyed the rural hospital sector.

6. I will only consider a health system to be under quality leadership if market share grows and profits meet or exceed the industry benchmark. I won’t accept ‘mission’ as an excuse.

The Biden Administration has put forth their healthcare plan, which seeks to expand access to affordable healthcare with the following:
***
***
(1) upholding and expanding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), to reduce the amount that consumers pay for health insurance on the individual marketplace; (2) offering a new, public insurance option similar to Medicare; (3) prohibiting the practice of “surprise billing”; (4) leveraging the Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) and Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC’s) antitrust authority to target market concentration within the healthcare system; and, (5) driving down prescription drug prices by increasing competition for, and regulation, of pharmaceutical companies.

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.

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.

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.

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.

On Medicare Advantage Plans (Private Medicare)

PART C

By John Kelly

***

Medicare Advantage Plans (Private Medicare) are sold on a county-by-county basis. Attached is the market penetration of MA (compared to traditional FFS Medicare) for every county in the USA.

***

Wonder why Medicare Advantage Premiums are going down (on average)? Because premiums are one of the measures by which the elderly decide what to purchase. Even though premiums are declining, not all MA plans are ‘cheaper’ than traditional FFS Medicare. Caveat Emptor.

It is also interesting to note that 3 carriers – Humana, UHC and BCBS Affiliates — cover 60% of all MA plan subscribers and use national networks of providers to offer broad service availability (compared to smaller plans, PSP’s and other narrow network options).

Medicare premiums per beneficiary typically exceed $10,000 per year. With effective ingenious use of benefit design, prior authorization, incentives, PBM contract rebates, etc., — there is a lot of money to be made in Medicare Advantage plans — accounting for the rapid growth in these plans over the last decade.
