Gary W. Herschman, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Newark office, was quoted in Bloomberg BNA Health Law Reporter, in “Health-Care Policy, Fraud and Abuse Reign as Top Health Law Issues for 2017.”
Following is an excerpt:
Moreover, there is no "logical reason" to reverse positive industry-wide trends, like value-based payments, that have shown signs of accomplishing the goal of providing cost-efficient high quality health care, Gary W. Herschman, of Epstein, Becker & Green in Newark, N.J., told Bloomberg BNA. Herschman predicted commercial health plans will "piggy-back on the early success of government value-based purchasing programs." Thus, they increasingly will be calculating provider payments based on shared savings, care management fees, quality bonuses and bundled payments.
