The provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 are having a business impact on care providers large and small in the US. This impact will only increase as the provisions of the Act are progressively rolled out.

  • Pressure to reduce costs, driven by:
    • Lower reimbursements, particularly within Medicare: Payments cuts mean operations must be more efficient.
    • Tighter compliance: Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) will make sure providers meticulously document in compliance with regulations, or face penalties.
    • Shift to ICD-10 codes: Challenges arise from new codes to be learned, old ones retired and more detail required in patients’ notes. With these changes, coding error-rates will inevitably show a temporary increase. Knowledge of the new system can reduce the pain and costs of implementation.
  • Mandated MLR (Medical Loss Ratios): These will increase the pressure to make every expense count.
  • Market Expansion: The 19 million new policy-holders expected after full implementation of the Act — many requiring treatment and documentation —will mean more growth and variability in operations and turnover.
  • Electronic Medical Records (EMRs): Providers face expanded requirements to generate Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), requiring updated technology.
  • Unpredictability: The healthcare industry is expected to face unpredictability as all these factors play out in the real world.
