#senators, if you pass a law forbidding any healthcare healthplan from neotiating network discounts greater than 20%. People will never pay more than 20% of what an insurer pays! Prices will drop dramatically over night!
Why? Health plans contract to pay doctors 40% and hospitals 10% of billed prices. So a day in the hospital is billed at $25,000 per day and the contracted “reimbursement” pays hospitals $2,500! If you are a consumer? You pay the full rate! The effect? You must get insurance.
New models of healthcare? HSAs are great, major medical (catastrophic only coverage) and pre-tax deposits to cover outpatient services. This is much more cost effective. Future Crypto-HSA might be even better!
Today Healthplans and the government have deployed ACOs (accountable care organisations) and imagine these as smaller subcontracted HMOs of older days. The problem, insurers are delegating the risk to ACOs which are micro ecosystems of hospitals, clinics and doctors. This creates higher risks for managing smaller patient populations. Many of these are failing, hospitals going bankrupt.
None of these newer directions of healthcare are curing our $3.2 Trillion health insurance bill. 95% of payments are through insurance claims (e billing) and adjudication, repricing, authorizations, network leasing and fees. 45% of healthcare $$ are wasted!! In addition, fraud accounts for $250 billon (FBI) in losses! We need new identity management systems to AUTHENTICATE patients, doctors, facilities and insurance claims!!!

Remember when doctors used to make house calls? Thanks to emerging healthcare IT solutions, patients can once again speak with their physicians and even have a face-to-face consultation right from the comfort of their own homes. But that’s only the beginning.
What is telehealth?
According to the American Telemedicine Association, telehealth encompasses a range of services, from health monitoring and patient consultation to the transmission of medical records. It’s more broadly defined as any electronic exchange of health information. A growing number of healthcare organizations have embraced telehealth because of the benefits it provides to patients and clinicians.
Healthcare cybersecurity breaches can be devastating, but there are resources available to help you prevent cybersecurity attacks and develop best practices. Is your healthcare organization using all of the cybersecurity resources at its disposal to prevent a breach?Hospital officials know the importance of preparing for healthcare cybersecurity breaches, not just for HIPAA compliance but also to avoid the costly disruptions and damage that can be caused by cyberattacks.
If you want to understand what’s happening with artificial intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity, look no further than this week’s news.
On Monday, Palo Alto Networks introduced Magnifier, a behavioral analytics solution that uses structured and unstructured machine learning to model network behavior and improve threat detection. Additionally, Google’s parent company, Alphabet, announced Chronicle, a cybersecurity intelligence platform that throws massive amounts of storage, processing power, and advanced analytics at cybersecurity data to accelerate the search and discovery of needles in a rapidly growing haystack.
Identity theft continues to be a serious issue for individuals and businesses. According to Javelin Research’s 2016 Identity Theft Study, $15 billion was stolen from 13.1 million individuals in 2015 (Al Pascual, Kyle Marchini, and Sarah Miller, “2016 Identity Fraud: Fraud Hits an Inflection Point,” Feb. 2, 2016, http://bit.ly/2fWJgco). For businesses, data breaches can compromise customers, clients, and employees; furthermore, it has been estimated that 90% of data breaches impact small businesses (“Small Businesses: The Cost of a Data Breach is Higher than You Think,” First Data Market Corporation, http://bit.ly/2gQCl1Z). In light of these statistics, it is essential for CPAs to address the financial and tax issues related to individual identity theft as well as compromised business data that can translate into identity theft for customers, clients, and employees.
