With all the noise lately on President Biden’s campaign to overhaul Medicare Advantage, Joel Theisen, Lifespark CEO, put pen to paper sharing his opinion on the subject. His thoughts were picked up by MedCity News.

In the article Joel said, “Done properly, Medicare Advantage should produce lower costs to taxpayers and better outcomes for patients. It forces providers to put their own skin in the game – they are on the hook for the overall health of the customer. So, the financial incentive is to invest in the wellness and preventive care that keeps people healthy, as opposed to the traditional churn of tests and surgeries and reactive treatments that currently pay the bills of so many providers.” This is worth the time – read Joel’s opinion piece here in MedCity News
