Today, Medicare faces the twin challenges of rising health care costs and an aging population. In response to these challenges, traditional Medicare is pursuing programs and demonstrations aimed at coordinating care for nursing home patients and curbing avoidable hospital readmissions. These programs and demonstrations are built on innovative strategies pioneered by Medicare Advantage (MA) plans.
Are there new opportunities to extend cost-saving innovations developed by MA plans across Medicare? Or should policymakers pursue further reductions in reimbursement to MA plans? What would the impact of these competing approaches be on health care costs and beneficiaries’ care?
Our presenters at this roundtable, jointly sponsored by the National Coalition on Health Care and the Partnership for the Future of Medicare, will offer their perspectives on these key questions.
We hope you can join us on November 13.
