COMPARING MEDICARE ADVANTAGE AND FEE-FOR-SERVICE MEDICARE SUGGESTS OPPORTUNITIES FOR SAVINGS IN HOSPITALIZATION
A close look at the financial implications of participating in the Medicare Advantage plan and Medicare fee-for-service plans and the impact on hospitals and post-acute care.
Brian Fuller, CEO, collaborates with Jean Fuglesten Biniek, Aaron Bloschichak and Sally Rodriguez from the Health Care Cost Institute, and Anne Tumlinson from ATI Advisory in this article for Health Affairs. The article discusses opportunities for hospitals and post-acute care providers to realize savings by optimizing the right payment models and post-acute care options.
“Although MA appears to be more efficient than fee-for-service in several areas of inpatient and post-acute care use, there likely remains opportunity to more dramatically redesign and transform delivery of care to Medicare beneficiaries who need clinical interventions, rehabilitation, and restoration of function following a hospitalization.“– Brian Fuller, CEO
