    A Continuing Look at the Affordable Care Act

    In this installment of the Explanation of Benefits podcast, Dr. Jay and J.R. continue to reflect on the Affordable Care Act and its impact on health insurance.

    Both Dr. Jay and J.R. were working in insurance at the inception of the ACA, and they saw some of these sweeping changes from the inside. A large portion of the conversation focuses on the three R's established by the ACA: risk adjustment, reinsurance, and risk corridors.

    How Do High-Deductible Health Plans Impact Spending?

    How Do High-Deductible Health Plans Impact Spending?

    In our latest episode, Dr. Jay and J.R. talk about high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) and how these plans impact healthcare in the U.S. — particularly among people who have private or commercial health insurance.

    Our hosts take a look at some recent research regarding whether HDHPs are working as anticipated (lowering healthcare costs while making people more engaged in their overall care). While these plans have been shown to decrease the number of "low-value" services members receive, they also had some unintended consequences as it relates to preventive care.

    The Ins and Outs of Contracting Methodologies

    The Ins and Outs of Contracting Methodologies

    We're celebrating 10 episodes today! To mark this momentous occasion, Dr. Jay and J.R. do a deep dive into the various contracting methodologies that insurance companies use when talking to hospitals.

    They start with fee-for-service models, which pay a set amount of money to providers for a given service. They also explain bundled payments, which see providers take a single payment for a collection of related services. And finally, they look at capitation — weighing all healthcare costs across a population and collecting a set amount of money based on estimates of what sort of care will be necessary.
