KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., March 8, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TMG Health, the leading national provider of Business Process Outsourcing solutions to the Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D and Managed Medicaid markets, announces that it will host a live, complimentary webinar entitled, "Unlocking the Potential of Value-Based Care in Medicare Advantage" on Wednesday, March 23, 2016, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The webinar will offer insight from Brian E. Flanigan, Principal, and Lucia Giudice, Director and Government Programs Practice Leader, at Deloitte Consulting LLP.
The webinar will discuss how the key to unlocking the full potential of Medicare Advantage Value-Based Care arrangements is for health plans and providers to join forces. The speakers will present research and findings from Deloitte's latest paper which investigates four overarching themes:
1. Most Health Plans and Providers are experimenting with Value-Based Care arrangements in Medicare Advantage (MA)
2. Value-Based Care strategies are similar in commercial and MA lines of business, but Health Plans see greater value potential in MA
3. Federal policies, initiatives and regulations influence MA Value-Based Care strategies
4. Health Plans and Providers have challenges to overcome in the MA Value-Based Care space
"The transition from traditional models to a value-based care reimbursement model presents opportunities and challenges for both health plans and providers," explains William Haggett, Executive Vice President of Corporate Development & Strategy at TMG Health. "While this new model drives improvements to care delivery and health outcomes, health plans and providers need to 'get it right' in order to avoid financial penalties and lowered reimbursement rates. Understanding both the potential benefits and pitfalls of this emerging payment model is the first step toward implementing a successful program."
The 45-minute presentation will be followed by a live question and answer period.
