Trump Era Likely Will Increase Collections From Patients But Won't End MACRA

Publisher: Part B News

Eric Fader was quoted in an article, "Trump Era Likely Will Increase Collections From Patients But Won't End MACRA," in Part B News. In the article, Fader discussed how an alternative plan for national health care reform offered by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, called "A Better Way," might gain support if the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is repealed, in whole or in part. "The way it was proposed [A Better Way] hasn’t seen much input from the smart people who happen to be Democrats," Fader said. "But now, if those proposals are discussed and vetted and tweaked, you might get some buy-in." Fader also pointed out that most revenue-producing healthcare regulations that are not part of the ACA will likely remain in place. "No matter what happens, the government will have to look for alternative sources of funding to replace the lost revenue from the employer and individual mandate, the medical device and Cadillac taxes, etc.," he said, and "programs that are deemed unnecessary may be defunded."
