HMS Blog: 2013 Year in Review

2013 marked a milestone in American healthcare. The healthcare industry probably experienced more change than any other industry.  Key aspects of healthcare reform started to take effect and there was a serious focus on care coordination.

We have compiled a list of the top news stories of 2013 below.  These news stories are ranked based on page views on the HMS blog:

  1. HMS Exclusive: What Happens if a Privately Insured Individual Doesn’t Pay His/Her Premium Under the ACA?
  2. HMS Exclusive: Understanding Transitional Care Management Codes
  3. Breaking News: United Healthcare to Drop Thousands of CT Docs from its Medicare Advantage Plan
  4. HIPPS Code Requirements on Medicare Advantage Claims Effective December
  5. Breaking News: President Obama Signs Pathway for SGR Reform Act of 2013
  6. Transitional Care Management Services Fact Sheet
  7. HMS Healthcare Social Media Series: Developing a Social Media Schedule
  8. Two Midnight Rule: An Introduction
  9. CMS Revises Discharge Planning Guidelines
  10. The New DSS Medicaid Audits

With full ACA implementation and ICD-10 conversion a few months down the road, we have a sneaking suspicion that 2014 will be an even busier year.

Happy New Year!
