Upcoming Funeral for PPO’s Announced

Health Care Reform will end PPO’s as we know them today. Effective January 1, 2012, “Insurers must submit annual reports to Secretary on disease management, care coordination, hospital readmission rates, patient safety and provider rate reimbursement structures.”

Provider rate reimbursement structures, or fees, will become part of the public domain and no longer hidden in secretive PPO contracts.

The secret world of PPO provider contracts will be no more.

Sometimes change is good. This is good.
