Len Nichols on Panel at AcademyHealth Research Meeting (ARM) in San Diego

Is it Time for Comprehensive Competitive Pricing in Medicare?

One of the most promising options to address the serious financial problems Medicare faces is comprehensive competitive pricing (CCP). Under CCP, the Medicare program accepts bids for the entitlement benefit package, and then uses those risk-adjusted bids to determine the government’s contribution to a basic set of benefits. On Monday, June 9th, at the ARM in San Diego, the panelists will describe CCP and its effects on the fairness and efficiency of the Medicare program, discussing the economic and political implications of this major reform.
