Pathways to Payment Innovation in a Post-Health Reform Era
The new health reform law contains a number of changes in the way health care is paid for, particularly in public programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. The Alliance for Health Reform and The Commonwealth Fund sponsored a May 10 briefing which explored topics such as how some health care providers will be paid differently under reform, what effect this might have on payments across the health care system, and how providers are reacting.
