HEALTHCARE REFORM, SINCE ITS ONLY A TAX

The recent Supreme Court decision leaves most of healthcare reform intact with the determination that the act’s penalty is not a penalty, but is a tax. This raises the question of what other tax provisions are parts of the Affordable Care Act.

A higher Medicaid payroll tax is the primary source of financing. Currently wages are subject to a 2.9% Medicare payroll tax with workers and employers each paying half. Self- employed people pay the entire 2.9% but may deduct half on their income tax returns.

“WITH ALL DELIBERATE SPEED” – NOT AGAIN!

In the last century the United States Supreme Court, in perhaps one of its more unfortunate choices of words, ordered desegregation to proceed “with all deliberate speed”.

ACO FINAL RULE ON RISK SHARING

In late 2011, CMS released its final rule for ACOs under the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). The final rule provides a two track model. Under track one, a shared savings only approach is available, but only for the duration of the ACOs first agreement period. Track two is a two-sided gain/loss model for the period of the ACOs first agreement. After the initial agreement period, all ACOs will be required to participate under the two-sided share gain and share loss model.

INDIVIDUAL PATIENT RECORD RIGHTS

Indiana law and federal law (HIPAA) require patient access to and copies of medical records to patients. This is the mirror image of preventing unauthorized disclosure and access. The failure to properly respond to patient requests for medical record copies is one of the fastest growing areas of complaint made about doctors to consumer and medical licensing boards.
