1. Health Systems Compete with Medical Insurers for Clients and Revenue - The Minute

    01:25

    from 3BL Media / Added

    Traditional business models in the health care industry continue to be disrupted by the Affordable Care Act. In a potentially major shift in practice, health systems and medical groups are now competing against medical insurers by enrolling employer groups and individual consumers in their health plans, reports Modern Healthcare. A number of major, multi-state health systems, including Ascension Health, the largest U.S. not-for-profit system, have acquired health plans or insurance licenses. So have some regional health systems and even a few medical groups. Providers are turning to the insurance market because they are entering global budget contracts and would like to capture savings from more efficient care delivery themselves. But health care systems and medical groups that launch their own plans complicate their business-as-usual negotiations with insurers over payment rates and networks. Some health systems that have entered the insurance markets have even had their provider contracts canceled by insurers in disputes over reimbursement rates. It looks like the ?creative destruction? of innovation is alive and well in the health care sector. Read the release: http://bit.ly/1D33KHe ? 2015 | 3BL Media| All Rights Reserved

        It’s that time of year again when ‘Uncle Sam’ is beckoning taxpayers to file their annual returns. The Internal Revenue Service warns taxpayers to choose their tax preparers wisely. For those who made less than $53,000 last year, the elderly, persons with disabilities, or those who speak limited English, there’s free tax help available. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program at Dixie State University is again offering free tax preparation. It’s part of a free service where accounting students learn to e-file federal and state tax returns. Volunteer students said the biggest challenges with processing taxes this year have to do with the affordable care act.

                  from 3BL Media / Added

                  In this new era of healthcare under the Affordable Care Act, hospitals are working hard to improve outcomes, both for patients and for their bottom lines. There are two main drivers for change. One is negative: financial penalties, such as the one percent cut in Medicare payments under the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services? Hospital-Acquired Reduction Program, which penalizes poor performing hospitals. This year, 724 hospitals will be penalized for failing to meet new standards. The other driver is positive: the opportunity for increased profitability. The annual Truven Health Analytics list of the One Hundred Top Hospitals for 2015 evaluates 2,787 institutions. Performance is measured across more than a dozen categories, including mortality, complications, length of stay, readmissions, patient satisfaction and spending per beneficiary. In terms of financial performance, the top-rated hospitals had an average operating margin of 14.4 percent, compared with 3.6 percent for the peer group. Inpatient expenses per discharge were three percent lower, and the Top One Hundred also saw two percent lower costs per episode in treating Medicare patients. Lower costs and higher performance equals better business for hospitals and better outcomes for their patients. Read the release: http://bit.ly/1ErsHuf ? 2015 | 3BL Media| All Rights Reserved
