In Response to UnitedHealth looks at doctors' pay for medical savings by Centristsin2010
Just a few added facts which folks should be aware of:
1. The idea of Pay for Performance Health Care is not new and appears to have some benefits over FEE FOR SERVICE CARE but the devil is, as always, in the detail. Perhaps a well organized, bipartisan attempt of professionals in all areas of the health care field would add some interesting ideas but for now this is not the case under Obamacare. Just another reason why the VERY PARTISAN OBAMACARE BILL created behind closed doors IS FATALLY FLAWED and should either be open for changes to make it work or STARTED OVER COMPLETELY.
from wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pay_for_performance_%28healthcare%29
Pay for performance is an emerging movement in health insurance (initially in Britain and United States). Providers under this arrangement are rewarded for meeting pre-established targets for delivery of healthcare services. This is a fundamental change from fee for service payment.
2. Many doctors and their organizations support Pay for Performance.
3. IMPORTANT....Another major flaw of Obamacare is that it did not address a permanent doc fix in the end......ORIGINALLY, Pelosi proposed two twin health care bills, one Obamacare like and the other containing a permanent docs fix.......THIS MUST BE DONE TO TRULY REFLECT HEALTH CARE COSTS AND DOCTOR SUPPORT. Again, this is very important to seniors.
4. THIS SAME TOPIC POSTED BY THE SAME POSTER APPEARED ON CURRENT EVENTS UNDER THE TITLE......Save a trillion dollars? UnitedHealth looks at doctors' pay for medical savings
I believe UnitedHealth and UnitedHealthcare are the same companies. I should note that if so this is the company that AARP could earn up to $ 1 billion dollars in additional royalties because of the passage of Obamacare which brings up the old questions as to why the AARP supported Obamacare without consulting the membership. This was the conclusion of Congressional Hearings see below.
