...spending on these services is increasing even though there may be no difference in the care the patient receives," the issues brief states. "Out-of-pocket costs to the beneficiary are also higher since beneficiaries are responsible for roughly 20 percent of the payment amount for outpatient services."
...policies that help promote patient-centered care and provider accountability is a top priority of mine in Congress," said Congressman Black. "Specifically, this legislation would allow Medicare Advantage plans the flexibility to improve how care is delivered by allowing them to use VBID practices that give beneficiaries access to lower costs for certain medications or services that are clinically proven to have good health outcomes. Such flexibility has the potential to not only improve beneficiary outcomes, but also to promote cost transparency and encourage greater efficiencies within the health plans. Essentially, this creates an incentive for providers to have better outcomes - and at lower costs."
...But, sometimes additional help is needed to get our local communities up and running again," Pryor said. "In conjunction with the disaster assistance funding we've already received this year, this bill will provide the extra assistance Arkansas needs to fully recover."
