MedPAC Meets, Discusses Issues
Members of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission met for two days last week in Washington, D.C. to discuss a number of policy issues important to health care providers. Among those issues were:
- a unified payment system for post-acute care
- hospital and skilled nursing facility use by Medicare beneficiaries who reside in nursing homes
- refining merit-based incentive payment systems (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Systems (A-APMs) to encourage primary care
