Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a report that demonstrates how empowering states can help reduce costs.
Medicare Parts A & B
Medicare Open Enrollment kicked off on October 15 and will run through December 7. You will have better access to high-quality health coverage choices offering more options and lower premiums in 2018. You should be able to find plans that cost less but still give you quality care and better customer service.
CMS pronto emitirán a cada beneficiario de Medicare una nueva Tarjeta de Medicare, sin números de Seguro Social, para prevenir el fraude, mantener seguros los fondos de los contribuyentes, y para asegurar que siempre ponemos las necesidades de los pacientes primero.
CMS will soon be issuing every Medicare beneficiary a new Medicare Card, without Social Security Numbers, to prevent fraud, fight identity theft, and keep taxpayer dollars safe, and to help ensure that we always put the needs of patients first.
We have made great progress in recent years on reforming our system into one that delivers better quality of care for patients and pays for care in a smarter way, including investing more in prevention and primary care. Before 2010, there had been only modest efforts to improve care and reduce costs.
Today, CMS announced the Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative’s second round of shared savings results, with nearly all practices (95 percent) meeting quality of care requirements and four out of seven regions sharing in savings with CMS.
