PPOs to Challenge HMOs for Medicare Business as Patients Are Given More Choice Under New Legislation.PacifiCare Will Compete With Kaiser for Managed Medicare Lives in California
HealthLeaders- InterStudy, the managed care business of Decision Resources, Inc., finds that as new Medicare legislation comes into effect, HMOs will be challenged for their Medicare business by PPOs. Prior to the Medicare Modernization Act, PPOs were mostly unavailable to Medicare beneficiaries. Under the new legislation, however, Medicare patients will have an expanded opportunity to enroll in PPOs, which are becoming more popular because of the flexibility and greater provider choice they offer to patients.
Because of this new legislation, firms like PacifiCare that offer PPOs that bear risk will challenge Kaiser for managed Medicare lives in California.
