  2. 2. Road to Healthcare Reform<br />
  3. 3. Health reform: early 20th century<br />1912: Theodore Roosevelt believed that no country could be strong whose people were sick and poor, campaigned on a platform that called for mandatory health insurance for workers<br />AMA originally supported universal coverage, but by 1920, many physicians viewed compulsory insurance as threat to private practice, paternalistic, and “un-American” and AMA House of Delegates voted to oppose.<br />
  4. 4. Health reform: mid 20th century <br />FDR spoke in favor of a right to medical care, but did not push compulsory HI over fear that it would endanger other Social Security reforms<br />Bill after bill introduced to mandate coverage, but none passed the Congress<br />
  5. 5. Health reform: mid-20th century <br />1945: Truman proposed a single plan to provide coverage for all age groups financed by 4% rise in Social Security payroll taxes<br />AMA raised $3.5 million to oppose the bill, calling it “regimentation” and “totalitarianism”—even though Truman had no chance of getting it through a GOP-controlled Congress<br />
  6. 6. Health reform: the 1960s<br />Kennedy campaigned for a comprehensive program of HI coverage for the elderly<br />AMA established AMPAC with goal of electing conservatives to Congress and opposing Medicare<br />
  7. 7. Health reform: the 1960s<br />Assassination of JFK and LBJ’s ascendancy changed everything; LBJ believed in Medicare even more than JFK and knew how to get legislation through Congress<br />1964 elections: LBJ trounced Goldwater and the Democrats gained a 2-1 majority in Congress<br />
  8. 8. Health reform: the 1960s<br />1965 Medicare and Medicaid passed, providing hospital and medical care for the elderly and creating a State/Federal partnership to cover the very poor <br />
  9. 9. Health reform: 1970s<br />Under Nixon, Medicare expanded to cover disabled, Wage and Price controls; beginning of limits on Medicare payments to physicians and hospitals, increased regulation of physicians and health care facilities<br />Nixon proposed mandatory employer-sponsored HI but didn’t pass Congress<br />
  10. 10. Health reform: 1970s<br /><ul><li>1976: Carter campaigns for catastrophic plan, but after election priority shifts to controlling health care costs
  11. 11. Sen. Kennedy offers new legislation for mandatory employer HI, government subsidies for poor, competition among private plans, and negotiated fees
  12. 12. Bills fail due to economic recession, rising health costs, Congressional committee restructuring, and failure of advocates for comprehensive coverage to compromise</li></li></ul><li>Health reform: 1980s<br />Reagan favored repeal of many of the regulatory laws passed in the previous decade (e.g., National Health Planning Act and PSRO program); market-based “pro-competition” approach and tax credits favored for expanding HI<br />Medicare catastrophic and prescription drug coverage enacted, but repealed as seniors objected to paying for it <br />Growth in budget deficits led to new methods of paying doctors and hospitals<br />
  13. 13. Health reform: 1990s<br />Rising health care costs and 46 million uninsured increased popular support for HI reform<br />Clinton administration became the first since Truman to pursue a comprehensive plan to provide universal coverage<br />Health Security Act called for mandated employer and individual coverage, managed competition, purchasing alliances, global budgets<br />Plan failed to pass congressional committees<br />
  14. 14. Health reform: late-1990s <br />Following defeat of Clinton plan, more modest goals were set for expanding coverage, including S-CHIP program for low-income children<br />GOP take-over of Congress led to enactment of Balanced Budget Act of 1997, which mandated cuts in payments to hospitals, physicians, other providers and new “Medicare+Choice” program—first step toward goal of privatizing Medicare<br />
  15. 15. Health reform: early 21st century<br />Ironically, Republican Congress passed and President George W. Bush sign into law the largest expansion of federal entitlements since 1965: Medicare Prescription Drug Program (Part D)<br />Decision to run the program through private insurers and PBMs put a conservative “stamp” on expansion of entitlements<br />No dedicated funding or offsets, adding to federal deficit<br />
  16. 16. Health reform: the present<br />Obama campaigned for universal health care coverage, 2008 elections returned the Democrats to the White House and solidified control over Congress<br />After 18 months of contentious debate, Congress passes health care reform in March, 2010<br />
  17. 17. Health reform: the present<br />March 22, 2010:<br />Almost 100 years after a U.S. President first proposed <br />Health insurance for all, the Patient Protection and <br />Affordable Care Act is signed into law<br />

ACA: Coverage<br />Large employers must pay a penalty if their employees obtain coverage through an exchange (2014)<br />Individuals required to buy coverage or pay penalty (2014)<br />Medicaid expanded to 133% of FPL with 100% of cost initially paid for by federal government (2014), phases down to 90%<br />
  21. 21. ACA: Coverage<br />When fully implemented, 34 million previously uninsured Americans will have coverage (94% of legal residents)<br />Half by HI offered through exchanges, half by Medicaid<br />But most Americans will continue to obtain coverage through employer-sponsored HI<br />
  22. 22. ACA: Workforce<br />Primary Care Incentive Program: 10% bonus for designated services by primary care physicians (2011-2015)<br />Medicaid primary care parity: states can pay no less than Medicare rates for visits and vaccines by primary care physicians (2013, 2014)<br />Workforce Commission (appointed 2011, not yet funded) to project workforce needs and addresses barriers to primary care<br />

  30. 30. The Need <br />
  31. 31. Need for a New Healthcare Delivery Model<br />Increasing costs<br />Healthcare costs are growing faster than the economy and the cost of care is becoming difficult for employers, government and individuals to meet. <br />Need to improve quality<br />Patients receiving recommended treatment 55 % of the time<br />Poor U.S. performance on healthcare benchmarks compared to other developed countries despite spending more.<br />Regional variation<br />Healthcare cost and quality vary substantially among geographic regions. Little relationship between cost and quality. <br />
  32. 32. Need for a New Healthcare Delivery Model<br />Inadequate response to chronic care needs<br />Increasingly aging and chronically ill population with payment system that doesn’t recognize services found necessary for essential care e.g. care coordination, evidence-based population management, disease self management<br />Decreased Interest in Primary Care<br />The number of new students entering into primary care is decreasing and physicians who have chosen the field are disproportionately leaving compared to other specialties. <br />Both domestic and international data indicating that higher proportion of primary care physicians related to higher healthcare quality and lower costs. <br />

  72. 72. U.S. Encourages Bundling Medicare Payments<br />The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid invited providers on Tuesday to help develop four models to bundle payments as part of a larger effort to improve patient care and reduce costs.<br />The program is meant to encourage hospitals, doctors and other specialists to coordinate in treating a patient's specific condition during a single hospital stay and recovery.<br />The four models give providers flexibility on how they get paid and for which services, as well as give them financial incentives to avoid unnecessary or duplicative procedures. Three models involve a retrospective bundled payment arrangement, and one model would pay providers prospectively<br />Applicants for these models would also decide whether to define the episode of care as the acute care hospital stay only (Model 1), the acute care hospital stay plus post-acute care associated with the stay (Model 2), or just the post-acute care, beginning with the initiation of post-acute care services after discharge from an acute inpatient stay (Model 3).  Under the fourth model, CMS would make a single, prospective bundled payment that would encompass all services furnished during an inpatient stay by the hospital, physicians and other practitioners.<br />Three models involve a retrospective bundled payment arrangement, and one model would pay providers prospectively<br />
