On February 15, 2017, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “An Assessment of Potential Healthcare Policy Changes that Could Impact Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage.”
Throughout his campaign, President Trump indicated he would not make cuts to the Medicare program. But the reality is that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act could have a significant impact on several important Medicare benefits. Furthermore, many Republican legislators are considering a number of reforms that could drastically change the Medicare program, including the potential transition of Medicare to a premium support program.
During this webinar, HMA Principal Mary Hsieh and Senior Consultants Aimee Lashbrook and Jason Silva outline some of the key Medicare reforms being considered, which – if any – are likely to make it to the President’s desk, and how healthcare organizations can best navigate the evolving Medicare business and regulatory environment. Listen to the recording and:
- Understand the ACA’s Medicare-related provisions and what might be included in a partial repeal.
- Identify priorities of the new administration as it relates to Medicare.
- Find out what premium support could mean to the Medicare program, and identify what factors will impact the likelihood that Congress will take the controversial step of attempting to transition Medicare to a defined contribution model.
- Understand the potential opportunities and threats for insurance-based programs like Medicare Advantage and Medigap.
- Assess the likely future of key Medicare programs such as Medicare Advantage, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), and the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).
- Identify major policy windows and how they could affect timing of any Medicare-related changes.
