MIAMI, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite current uncertainties in the healthcare market, heightened by the recent
Leaders feel their organizations face many of the same challenges they did in 2011 when Obamacare was introduced: revenues not keeping up with cost growth is still an issue, quality and value remain ongoing concerns, and breaking even on government programs is still a challenge. While the potential capping of Medicaid funding and the fate of the Health Insurance Exchanges are wild-card issues, commercial insurance will remain the main avenue of growth, scale will remain critical, and the move towards value-based reimbursement will continue.
Even with the House passage of AHCA, significant uncertainty remains in an environment where organizations are "hunkering down" and focusing on "no-regret moves" while slowing down or halting new capital or infrastructure investments. Aamer Mumtaz, Dr. Alan London and Dr. David Fairchild, the study authors, expect that as a result, there could be a slowdown of the momentum created by the ACA towards care coordination and value-based care initiatives.
The authors concluded that the organizations facing the biggest challenges will be providers with significant exchange and Medicaid business, and that cutbacks in these already low-margin business lines are likely to have a disproportionately negative impact on those organizations.
