ML Strategies has posted its weekly Health Care Update. This publication provides timely information on implementation of the Affordable Care Act, Congressional initiatives affecting the health care industry, and federal and state health regulatory developments.
This week's Health Care Update focuses on bipartisan Congressional efforts to permanently replace the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate ("SGR"), commonly known as the "Doc-Fix." A deal to replace the SGR will likely include a reauthorization of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The Health Care Update also highlights the recently updated health insurance marketplace enrollment numbers and the announcement by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services ("CMS") of the Next Generation ACO model. The announcement of the Next Generation ACO model was also recently highlighted in a blog post by my colleague at ML Strategies, Andy Shin.
