Medicare Health Support - the DMAA Weighs In

Important article in the March 24 issue of Modern Healthcare:

The unsinkable Tracey Moorhead has penned an opinion on behalf of DMAA about the recent CMS decision to suspend Medicare Health Support.

Among her many points, the decision means:
  • gains made to date will be jeopardized
  • new initiatives will be difficult to re-start
  • local alliances will be disrupted
  • lessons learned will be lost
  • beneficiaries who seem to like it so far will be denied an important service
  • it's too early to tell
  • flexibility is called for
  • additional analyses may offer new insights
