Internists review progress, challenges and opportunities
Date:2/11/2014

unduly narrow networks and restrictive drug formularies and related issues on patient choice, access and continuity of care. ACP calls for a balanced, constructive and transparent approach to allow patients/consumers to make informed choices, to reduce unnecessary interruptions in continuity of care, and to ensure fairness and due process for clinicians and patients, including improvements in federal and state regulatory oversight of qualified health plans.

The specific, detailed recommendations presented by ACP today, are offered in the spirit of making sure that even as coverage is expanded, "we also constructively discuss and address potential obstacles to patients obtaining the care they need, from physicians they trust." ACP noted that as a result of the reluctance of some states to accept federal dollars to expand Medicaid, two out of three of the poorest Americans who were supposed to get covered by the ACA are left out. ACP reissued its call for all states to commit to expand Medicaid by the end of this year. Dr. Cooke noted that ACP is working with its chapters to get the word out to their states that expanding Medicaid is the right thing to do, for the health of their residents and for their state budgets.

In conclusion, Dr. Cooke suggested, "Let's build upon the enormous progress that already has been made. That way, 2014 truly is viewed as a watershed year in which we could honestly say that the state of the nation's health care is good and getting better, millions of Americans formerly without insurance are moving into the ranks of the insured, and we are making serious progress on paying for value to patients in the Medicare system."
