Call to Action: Sequestration Reimbursement Cuts

The CARES Act and the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 temporarily delayed the effects of sequestration during the ongoing public health emergency brought on by the Coronavirus. This reprieve provided relief to many specialty care practices treating patients with cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, macular degeneration and other illnesses during the pandemic.

Unfortunately, this sequester suspension is set to expire on March 31, 2021, which would result in the reinstatement of Medicare’s automatic 2% reimbursement cut. We believe that extending the sequestration suspension throughout 2021 would provide financial stability to help ensure continued patient access to physician practices. 

If you would like to get involved and make your voice heard, you can do so by communicating with your state and federal legislators on the need to extend the sequestration cut suspension through our Community Counts platform.

InfoDive®

Practice business analytics

InfoDive is a powerful business intelligence solution for your specialty practice. Learn how your practice can benefit from this benchmarking tool to enhance operations, benchmark physician performance and drive better business decisions.

 

Optimize access and purchasing power

The cost of a drug should never prohibit you from providing your patients with the care they need. That's why you depend on having reliable access to the most advanced collection of therapies entering the market. With the aggregated purchasing power of a tightly-aligned GPO and distributor, we can even help you bring dispensing capabilities to your practice—ensuring your patients can get everything they need in one place.

Navigate industry changes

The healthcare industry evolves constantly. To stay ahead of the curve, you need dedicated resources to help you navigate the transition from fee-for-service to fee-for-value reimbursement. Our team of experienced professionals will help you demonstrate the real, measurable value of the care you deliver, and meet merit-based incentive payment system (MIPS) reporting requirements—taking the burden of reporting off your staff and giving you peace of mind.

Advance the quality of patient care

Clinical trials and research are critical to advancing patient care and can provide additional revenue for your practice. But many specialty practices struggle to match the right patients with the right research opportunities. When you join our extensive research network, you will engage with other community-based practices in your specialty area to broaden your research expertise and increase patient access to clinical trials.

Elevate business performance

We design services and solutions that help specialty practices elevate financial and operational performance. Whether it's optimizing workflows or uncovering gaps in your billing processes, our business intelligence tools can help you reclaim lost revenue and avoid future discrepancies. You can also work with our team of consultants to create a customized plan that addresses the specific needs of your practice.

Your Smart GPO

What does it mean to be a Smart GPO? For us, it means using data and actionable insights to support your practice in the transition to value-based care. It means providing analytics tools to help you align with national guidelines. And it means using empirical evidence to put patient outcomes at the heart of your practice's health and sustainability.

When you join our Smart GPO, you become part of a network of specialty practices making data-backed decisions to advance the quality of patient care. That's having a smart partner in your corner.
