XLHealth Statement on Senate Finance Committee Roundtable on Healthcare Reform
Date:4/22/2009

BALTIMORE, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- XLHealth, owner and operator of Care Improvement Plus, one of the nation's largest Medicare Advantage chronic condition Special Needs Plans, supports the proposed areas of reform that the Senate Finance Committee discussed in the first of a series of round-table discussions on potential methods for overhauling the current healthcare system. The hearing's focus on using the Medicare system as a model for incorporating improved care coordination and chronic care management is well aligned with XLHealth's core mission and focus to improve quality and reduce healthcare costs for the nation's underserved and chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries.

"This meeting sent a clear message that it is time to move forward on developing a healthcare reform plan that will break the cycle of 'sick care' and focus on creating a system where preventive care, disease management, and improved care coordination are more encouraged," says Robb Cohen, XLHealth's chief government affairs officer. "As a comprehensive reform plan evolves, we will continue to work with congressional leaders, CMS, and others to develop innovative Medicare-based solutions that will best serve the nation's chronically ill beneficiaries, since they largely make up the approximately 20 percent of beneficiaries that account for nearly 80 percent of current Medicare spending."
