How Are Healthcare Policies Formed? Literally, Darling

12.29.2352 hours ago

1. If you are unfamiliar with the phrase ‘healthcare policy’ then you should know that this refers to any plans or actions that are made in order to meet certain goals. For example, when the COVID-19 pandemic first began, professionals across the country were required to put their heads together and come up with a plan that would then become policy. Policies will typically cover a few things including the delivery of the healthcare, the access to the care and how it will be financed. Many people believe that it is always medical professionals calling the shots but often, the government will make the final decision when it comes to a healthcare policy. Of course, there are many healthcare professionals that are involved in the creation of these policies as their opinions are often valuable. These professionals might come from a business background as opposed to a medical one, but that does not mean that they are unable to create policies that could be put in place on a global level.

5 Key Healthcare Issues Pending In Congress: 'New Rules

12.29.2357 hours ago

1. Many proposed bills (and the above mentioned executive order) focus on the disclosure of cost and financial information to the patient as well as the relationship between the patient, provider, and insurer—details which up to now have not always been transparent. Cost disclosure has received a lot of focus from both the legislative and executive branches. The fact that patients do not receive information about costs up front impairs their ability to compare providers and the costs of alternative treatments. The executive order focuses on lowering healthcare costs via a variety of Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) initiatives designed to “enhance the ability of patients to choose the healthcare that is best for them.” Legislation in Congress is focused on “surprise” medical bills. These are medical bills in which a patient unexpectedly finds one or more of their medical service providers is out-of-network and is therefore not covered or only partially covered, resulting i...
