Part D and Healthcare’s Future

There’s just one week left in the open season for the Medicare Part D open season, the time in which beneficiaries can join a Part D plan or engage in comparison shopping — using Medicare’s PlanFinder tool — to make certain they have the plan that offers the greatest value.

This is also a good time to take note of the lessons we learn from the Part D program as policymakers work to improve the nation’s healthcare system.  Part D has shown us that a public-private partnership can achieve high approval among beneficiaries and costs below original projections.

I thank The Hill publication for giving me the opportunity to discuss this in an op-ed piece.

And for all Prognosis readers, I wish you a happy and fulfilling holiday season.
