Mark E. Lutes, Chair of the firm’s Board of Directors and a Member of the firm’s Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the Washington, DC, office, was quoted in Modern Healthcare, in “Where Healthcare Is Now on March to Value-Based Pay,” by Melanie Evans and Bob Herman.

Following is an excerpt:

“Employers have the most skin in the game” in the commercial market for value-based care, so HHS has a stake in employers' commitment to new payment models, said Mark Lutes, a healthcare lawyer and board chair of Epstein Becker Green. “HHS is trying to incent and suggest here that there are common needs across employers and the government as purchasers,” Lutes said. “They are collectively trying to change the way they buy.”
