Medicaid and the ACA

Posted on: April 5th, 2013 by admin

Much of the recent focus around the implementation of the Affordable Care Act has been on the decision by individual states on whether to accept federal money to expand Medicaid. And while the debate over payment for health care continues, providers and policy makers fear the progress of cutting health care costs for everyone may be lost in the national and regional discussions. On this program, we look at the decision by leaders in both Carolinas’ to reject the federal expansion of Medicaid and the partnerships which could be strengthened to provide care for the uninsured. Joining the conversation are South Carolina DHHS Director Tony Keck, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center CEO Dr. John McConnell, Greenville Health System Chief Medical Officer Dr. Angelo Sinopoli and Carolinas HealthCare System CEO Michael Tarwater.

Analyzing the Ruling

Posted on: August 3rd, 2012 by admin

A ruling by our nation’s high court on the Affordable Care Act seems to have only led to more questions surrounding healthcare and coverage for the uninsured. As physicians, hospital administrators and insurers continue to dissect the Supreme Court’s ACA decision, we called on three of our region’s healthcare leaders to explain the ruling’s significance: Carolinas HealthCare System CEO Michael Tarwater, NC Medical Society Chief Robert Seligson and SC DHHS Director Anthony Keck.

Cost of Care

Posted on: February 7th, 2012 by admin

The complexities of our health care system can make it difficult for patients to understand the true cost of their care. Doctors and hospitals are paid by insurers based on the services they provide, not for the outcome of their care for the patient. On this program, three hospital executives and a physician discuss the push to change the methods of compensation while lowering healthcare costs and convincing patients to live healthier lives. We are joined by Roper St. Francis Healthcare CEO David Dunlap, Russ Guerin, Carolinas Healthcare System EVP for Business Development and Planning, Laurens County Health Care System CEO Rich D’Alberto and Dr. Samuel Harris of  Wake Forest Baptist Health Women’s Services, Lexington
