XLHealth Applauds Quality Focused Reforms in Senate Finance Committee Legislation

BALTIMORE, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- XLHealth released the following statement today from Executive Vice President Paul Serini, Esq.:

"The Senate Finance Committee's approval today of historic health care reform legislation demonstrates Congress' understanding of the important role of coordinated health benefits and quality focused coverage as a means of controlling health care costs for chronically-ill and underserved Medicare recipients."

"The legislation's concept to authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services to reward plans demonstrating high quality and innovation in care coordination is a step in the right direction for Medicare reform, encouraging a better quality of care for some of our nation's neediest beneficiaries."

"We are pleased to see the Senate Finance Committee's commitment to extending Special Needs Plan authority through 2013 to ensure that beneficiaries with special needs may continue to receive the comprehensive health care benefits to which they have grown accustomed."

"XLHealth's chronic condition special needs plan serves more than 50,000 Medicare beneficiaries nationwide. Our goal is to be a model program for Medicare reform, with interventions that are tried and proven to work. Our members demonstrate better health outcomes because they receive better care coordination. Individuals with well-managed chronic diseases require fewer hospital stays and additional treatments for disease-related complications - lowering health care costs."
