Sounds too good to be true, quality heathcare and dollars wisely?
Check it out:
Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell on Monday announced an ambitious new effort to reward quality medical care and phase out payments based solely on the volume of services provided in the Medicare program.
For the first time, the agency is setting an explicit timetable for transitioning Medicare away from its dominant fee-for-service model.
Burwell said in a statement Monday. ”Today’s announcement is about improving the quality of care we receive when we are sick, while at the same time spending our health care dollars more wisely.”
