XLHealth Statement on Social Security and Medicare Trustees Report
Date:5/13/2009

BALTIMORE, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- XLHealth, owner and operator of Care Improvement Plus, one of the nation's largest Medicare Advantage chronic condition Special Needs Plans, views the Social Security and Medicare Trustees report issued yesterday as another call to action to address the needs of the chronically ill. Along with a struggling economy, a primary driver of the shortened timeline toward Medicare insolvency includes spending associated with chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries. It is critical to institute system-wide modifications that will address these issues.

"In order to avoid Medicare insolvency, we must be moving forward on developing a healthcare reform plan where disease management, better access to care and improved care coordination are the focus," says Paul Serini, XLHealth's executive vice president. "By providing more robust care coordination and chronic care management for Medicare's chronically ill, and evolving the current risk adjustment system to accurately identify the healthcare costs of beneficiaries with chronic illnesses, the system can take a positive turn for the future."
