Healthcare reform reaches top of 2012 health issues listPosted On Mon, January 9, 2012
The healthcare changes enacted by the federal government are the biggest health law-related concern according to a survey of health professionals by Bloomberg BNA's Health Law Reporter.
The 27-person board said that healthcare reform was important because of its extreme effects on every part of the healthcare industry, the report noted. In addition, fraud and abuse came in second, as it has some issues related to overall reform. Medicare and Medicaid came in third, while antitrust issues and healthcare quality rounded out the top five.
"Relying on their collective and comprehensive knowledge across a wide range of health law practices areas, including taxation, antitrust, fraud and abuse compliance, and Medicare reimbursement and compliance, they predicted that 2012 will be a blockbuster year for health law," said Peyton Sturges, senior legal editor in Bloomberg BNA's health division.
For consumers who are concerned about future health insurance rate increases due to healthcare reform, it may be a good idea to check to see if there is an affordable option available. Comparing health insurance quotes could make this easier.
