PYA Principal Martie Ross and Senior Manager Kathy Reep discussed the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) in a complimentary webinar on June 23, 2021. MedPAC is the nonpartisan legislative agency that provides Congress with policy advice on the Medicare program. The primary outlets for the agency’s recommendations are two reports that are published in March and June each year. These reports are akin to a “crystal ball” when it comes to future Medicare policies and programs.
PYA’s webinar highlighted key analysis and recommendations from the March and June 2021 reports, including:
- Payment updates
- Alternative payment models
- Transparency of provider ownership (private equity)
- Teaching hospitals
- Separately payable drugs
- Clinical lab fee schedules
This webinar is part of PYA’s twice monthly “Healthcare Regulatory Roundup” series in which experts from across the firm provide practical insights on the latest regulatory developments.
