New York Times: Medicare Allows More Benefits for Chronically Ill, Aiming to Improve Care for Millions
A recent New York Times article on the new CHRONIC Care Act includes the comments of Assistant Professor Dr. Eva H. Dugoff (HLSA).
Under the new policy, the new benefits are reserved for Medicare Advantage plans. In the article Dr. Dugoff comments on the CHRONIC Care Act’s potential expansion to traditional Medicare, “We can learn from Medicare Advantage plans which services have the most benefits for which populations.”
Dr. Dugoff and Dr. Amber Willink, assistant scientist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, recently published a perspective in the New England Journal of Medicine. The perspective provides an analysis on the promise and potential pitfalls of the CHRONIC Care Act and how it will be implemented.
