Unintended consequences ahead?

By Rich Daly
5:15 pm, Nov. 18

Reducing the incidence of improper payments in Medicare and Medicaid has been described as one of the few areas of common ground between the two major political parties' healthcare policies. But providers are increasingly warning that the specific initiatives recently launched may run afoul of the law of unintended consequences by actually increasing the healthcare sector's overall costs.

In the Nov. 21 issue of Modern Healthcare I take a look at some of the administration's latest steps to cut such costs from these two huge federal healthcare programs, as well as where providers see those actions crossing the line. The story also will be available on the ModernHealthcare.com homepage.
