Evidence at trial showed that the patients were not referred to the clinics by their primary care physicians, or for any other legitimate purpose, but rather were recruited with prescriptions for controlled substances, cash payments, and fast food. The three clinics then billed the Medicare program for various diagnostic tests that were medically unnecessary.

Politico: Wisconsin Senate: Can Tommy Thompson Recapture Magic? The last time Tommy Thompson appeared on a ballot Mike Holmgren was the head coach of the Packers, “ER” was the top-rated show on television and Twitter was still a decade away from mainstream popularity. The year was 1998, and Thompson sailed to a fourth term as governor, disposing of his Democratic opponent by a 21-percentage-point margin. … Yet, there’s evidence that Thompson’s more recent work in Washington has tarnished his sterling image back home. Thompson served as a senior partner at the Beltway lobbying powerhouse Akin Gump, making millions as a consultant on health care issues after serving as Health and Human Services secretary under President George W. Bush (Cantanese, 10/23).

Facts about ACA and Medicare
What Is the Truth about the ACA and Medicare? This video – titled “Affordable Health Care – A Human Right and A Moral Imperative” was produced by OneWorld Progressive Institute a year ago to address this very question. It is a valuable antidote to much of the misleading and outright false information being spread today about Medicare and the new Affordable Care Act.

Event Recap: Let’s Talk #HIT with David Harlow
The term ‘Accountable Care Organization (ACO)’ first cropped up in 2006 during a Medicare Payment Advisory Commission meeting. Initially named by Eliot Fisher, the Director of the Center for Health Policy Research at Dartmouth, an ACO is defined as a healthcare payment and delivery model where a network of providers and/or organizations agree to share the responsibility, accountability and cost of a patient’s treatment plan. These goals are achieved by a greater focus on wellness, increased inter-departmental communications, and improved access to patient information. After a certain amount of time, providers analyze and compare patient’s care and payment data to similar beneficiaries. In addition, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced “Bundled Payment” plans, wherein patients receive one bill across a longer episode of care—such as a knee replacement—rather than a series of claims from multiple providers. If these collaborative efforts help the network save funds due to lower costs through reduced treatments, the network shares in the savings.
CMS Letter on Poor Performing Medicare Advantage Plans
CMS has also created an SEP allowing beneficiaries one chance to move from a “poor” performing plan to one that is rated 3-Star or higher after January 1, 2013. This SEP is not agent driven however, so in order for someone to take advantage of this, the individual must call 1-800-MEDICARE. There are no timeframes, end dates, etc. associated with this SEP and CMS will be granting the SEP on a case-by-case basis. Beneficiaries will be receiving letters regarding this as well.

It’s human nature for a person to constantly feel secured. If they feel safe, if they feel like they don’t have to worry, then they can enjoy themselves. They can be themselves. This idea can apply to many contexts. If parents are dropping their kids off at a well-maintained and secured daycare, they know they’re in good hands. Family members double check their supplies to be sure they’re completely prepared for the camping trip. The very same idea goes for seniors and healthcare insurance. Elderly people and their families want to be certain that they are receiving top quality healthcare insurance. They also want to have options that meet their requirements.
