Healthcare Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

  1. 1. HealthCare in America Yesterday Today Tomorrow
  2. 2. A PHYSICIAN’S PERSPECTIVE Current State of Health Care Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) Health Care Post ACA Concierge Medicine or Private Medicine
  3. 3. The Good Old Days
  4. 4. Pre Insurance Paradigm •Patient decides upon the Provider. •Patient pays for service •Payment may be in cash or credit of some sort
  5. 5. Current System • Concept of insurance added during Truman’s administration • Lyndon Johnson-1965-Medicare passed • 1970’s insurance enters medicine and it becomes oriented more towards business and away from patient care
  6. 6. Current Paradigm •Insurance tells physician what services it can provide for what costs and under what conditions. •Physician bills insurer for payment. •Patient chooses insurance (via the exchange, employer, or other). •Insurer tells patient what provider(s) they can see and what is and is not covered. •Patient waits on the Provider. •Eventually the patient gets a few minutes of “face time” with provider. •Provider reactively treats patient as allowed by insurer, not based on best practices.
  7. 7. The current healthcare system is broken. In 2007, Americans 15 years and older collectively spent 1,611 years waiting for medical services.1 The Average Wait Time to see a Physician in 2009 was 22 minutes.2 “Lost Time is Never Found Again” – Benjamin Franklin 1. Feb 2009 New York Times Article “A Hidden Cost of Healthcare: Patient Time” 2. Oct 2010 Wall Street Journal Article “The Doctor Will See You Eventually”
  8. 8. Average Wait times by City Longest wait times for Family Practice, by city; • Portland 13 days • Boston 66 days • Los Angeles 20 days • D.C. 14 days • New York 26 days http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/01/29/in-cities-the-average-doctor-wait-time-is-18-5-days/
  9. 9. Everyone knows…it’s Only Going to Get Worse 1. ObamaCare is adding 30 million more patients to an already overburden system. 2. Fewer Primary Care Physicians are entering the marketplace. 3. Physicians will have to see 30+ patients a day to keep up with demand and carry up to 3,000 patients in their practice. 4. Focus remains on episodic care only.
  10. 10. AFFORDABLE CARE ACT Biggest effort at social engineering since Medicare and Medicaid in 1965 Requires most individuals to obtain health care coverage Requires insurance companies and employers to provide consumer protection related to health

  31. 31. Who is enrolling in ACA? Bloomberg: “About 30 percent of new enrollees are under 35. White House officials say that’s an acceptable mix, and they expect more young people to come on board closer to the March 31 deadline. ‘We think that more and more young people are going to sign up as time goes by, based on the experience in Massachusetts,’ Gary Cohen, deputy administrator at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, said on a conference call with reporters. ‘We’re actually very pleased with the percentage that we have right now, and we expect that percentage to increase.’ http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01/14/the-current-state-of-obamacare-explained-in-three-charts/
  32. 32. Who is enrolling in ACA? Bloomberg: “Under Obamacare, insurers can’t charge men and women different rates— or, as Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius put it, ‘Starting in 2014, being a woman is no longer a preexisting condition.’ That generally resulted in lower prices for women compared with insurance markets where underwriting by gender is allowed, so it’s not surprising women signed up in greater numbers.” http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01/14/the-current-state-of-obamacare-explained-in-three-charts/
  33. 33. Who is getting a subsidy? Bloomberg: “Most of the people who bought coverage on the exchanges this fall got subsidies to help them afford the premiums. That’s in contrast to the first month of the program, when less than one-third of buyers were subsidized. People earning up to four times the poverty rate—as much as $96,000 a year for a family of four—can get help buying coverage. … http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01/14/the-current-state-of-obamacare-explained-in-three-charts/

  46. 46. Concierge Medicine In its simplest form, Concierge Medicine is a relationship between the physician and patient in which the patient pays a monthly or annual fee to insure the physician is available to the patient. It is fee for service medicine. Other names include private pay medicine, boutique medicine, retainer-based medicine, innovative medical practice design.
  47. 47. Concierge Medicine History Begin in 1996 in Seattle Washington Developed a national organization in 2003 Most practices are “mom and pop” type operations On average, one conversion per day from primary care to concierge medicine

  49. 49. Concierge Medicine Services Offered-General  Same day service  Expanded physician appointments  Phone Access directly to physicians
  50. 50. Basic/Advanced • Insurance still tells physician what services it can provide for what costs and under what conditions. • Physician bills insurer for payment. •Patient chooses insurance (via the exchange, employer, or other). •Insurer tells patient what provider(s) they can see and what is and is not covered. •Patient makes appointment with provider, waits at no more than 2 days to be seen at the practice and no more than 5 minutes in office before being seen. •Patient gets 15-30 minutes of “face time” with provider. •Provider proactively treats patient, with fewer restrictions from insurer, because monthly dues offset financial losses from non-covered items.
  51. 51. New Paradigm, Premium •The physician/patient balance is restored. Care is provided on best practices and patient needs, not insurance mandates. •Patient makes same day appointments with provider and has no inoffice wait time before being seen. •Patient gets all the “face time” they need with provider. •Provider proactively treats patient, with no restrictions from insurer. •Patient still chooses insurance (via the exchange, employer, or other) as needed for services outside of the Sendant program, ie Hospital stay. •Patient still chooses insurance (via the exchange, employer, or other) for when they are not in the Sendant program. ie Hospital stay.

  55. 55. Concierge Medicine 36% of primary care physicians interviewed are planning to cut back on patients, work parttime, or retire in next 3 years (Am. Jour. Of Managed Care 2012)

  57. 57. Provisions of the Affordable Care Act 1. Are uninsured for less than 3 months of the year 2. Have very low income and coverage is considered unaffordable 3. Are not required to file a tax return because their income is too low
  58. 58. • • • • • As this graphic shows, the new law creates 68 grant programs, 47 bureaucratic entities, 29 demonstration or pilot programs, 6 regulatory systems, 6 compliance standards and 2 entitlements. What could possibly go wrong with something sowell organized? This chart was meticulously compiled over the last four months after perusing the 2,841 pages of Obamacare that no one who voted for the bill bothered to read. The HHS czar, Kathleen Sebelius, has 2200 references in the law and 600 new authorities which cannot be challenged. On the chart everything in dark blue to the left are expansions, orange are those empowered with rationing healthcare in the future. In the bottom left hand corner in blue, 150 new bureaucracies and boards have been created between doctor and patient. Those in yellow are specific mandates and there are 17 new mandates on insurance. Rep. Brady stated this law is so complex he couldn’t get the chart to fit on one page, the chart is only actually 1/3 of the size of the law so he shows “bundles of bureaucracy.” For example, one brown bundle hides 59 grant programs. Green diamonds are the taxes this law has created. In the far right corner are 19 special interest provisions, including the “Louisiana Purchase” and special interests for unions. Buried deep in the law are 19 special sections that cannot be challenged by the courts or any regulatory system. What the public is being sold and what the law actually has are 2 totally different things. And jobs created? Yes. Many. 16,500 new IRS agents to police the law and an explosion of jobs in the HHS Department. Please print out copies of this chart and hand to your friends, families and pass out wherever. The public needs to be educated about the impact of this law and what it will mean for their future.
