  1. If you're confused about the various CMS Quality Programs and their corresponding ratings you're not alone!

Joanna shares the 2021 quality payment criteria for physicians, ACOs and explains how these work with the Medicare Advantage Plan quality programs. This is an essential guide to any physician practicing in primary care!

  3. Heads up! A new rule effective January 2021 takes hospital price transparency to the next level! If enforced, it will open up a new source on hospital charges, and will shed light on some of the most closely held pricing information in healthcare. In this episode, we give a summary of what you can expect to see over the next 1-3 years. We also used our best detective skills to see how some hospitals are adapting to these rules.
