Chronic-care man­age­ment bill de­serves speedy pas­sage

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle “New bill aims to al­low chronic-care man­age­ment with no cost-shar­ing for some plans” (Mod­ern­Health­care.com, July 11), as a physi­cian, I have seen many pa­tients with chronic dis­eases who need­lessly be­came much worse be­cause of the high cost of their care. This new leg­is­la­tion would pre­vent this prob­lem and is an out­stand­ing so­lu­tion that should be adopted as soon as pos­si­ble. The fact that this is bi­par­ti­san leg­is­la­tion should speed its ap­proval.
