With the uncertainty regarding the future of the Health Care System, physicians and private practices are looking for solutions during these fearful and uncertain economical times. There is fear that the Affordable Health Care Act will make it difficult for private practices to survive, and for doctors to make the living they deserve. Facts are, with rising costs, reimbursements are sure to be cut. Fortunately there is a new cash based model that doctors are implementing that can have both a positive financial outcome for your practice but it provides a solution to rising health care costs by reducing obesity. In 2018, CMS will be releasing the Diabetes Prevention Program aimed at adding wellness and preventative services to help combat the rising cost of health care and as a solution to manage and prevent chronic disease.
