    The Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission is a non-partisan legislative branch agency that provides policy and data analysis and makes recommendations to Congress, the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the states on a wide array of issues affecting Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).   This policy brief does not discuss MACRA's two-year extension of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) or provisions pertaining to issues other than physician payment. And in the case.

    Introduction When resolving a liability claim involving medical treatment, the parties are required by federal law, pursuant to the Medicare Secondary Payer Act (MSP), 42 U.S.C. y(b)(2), to consider Medicare’s interests with regard to the settlement of the medical portion of the claim. The intent of the MSP is to prevent settling parties from shifting. The Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative was comprised of four broadly defined models of care, which linked payments for the multiple services beneficiaries received during an episode of care. Under the initiative, organizations entered into payment arrangements that included financial and performance accountability for episodes of care.

    Medicaid hospital payments include base payments set by states or health plans and supplemental payments. Estimates of overall Medicaid payment to hospitals as a share of costs vary but range from.   In such cases, the new medicine’s very high per dose costs can be criticized. But this analysis may look very different when put into the context of the value the medicine provides to the patient, and the overall costs incurred by Medicare (or the private insurer) and the patient.
