Below is our third edition of reform’s Impacts on California, with the widespread theme of cost-containment. In it, you will find an investigation of the “hard savings” (cadillac tax, medicare provisions, etc), incentive and payment reforms, delivery system overhauls (ACOs, prevention, care coordination), and data transparency provisions through standardization and information technology. The piece ends with specific recommendations for California to be successful in the post-reform world.
