Managed Care Minute: February 28, 2015

A one-minute look at managed care news during the week of February 23, 2015, including another step by CMS toward a quality-based payment system and more predictions on the outcomes of King v. Burwell.

This week CMS took a step toward building a quality-based payment system and unveiled a new rate proposal for Medicare Advantage and Part D drug program.

Finally, The American Journal of Managed Care’s ACO and Emerging Healthcare Delivery Coalition will meet live April 30 and May 1 in San Diego with keynote speaker Suzanne Delbanco, PhD, director of Catalyst for Payment Reform. Learn more here.
