PHOENIX, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Greg Maldonado, President of Phoenix-based American National Medical Management (ANMM), understands the Patient Protection and Affordable Care ACT (PPACA, also known as "Obamacare") and people are paying attention. His recent conversation with Laura Miller for Becker's ASC Review is currently one of the most popular pieces on the online juggernaut's site.
Maldonado's lucid and balanced remarks about the ways in which PPACA can be used to protect provider reimbursements and improve healthcare is a proverbial breath of fresh air in a debate fraught with misrepresentations. The proliferation of negative publicity surrounding PPACA has obscured an important fact of immense value to providers struggling with declining reimbursements. Maldonado explains: "PPACA healthcare laws...mandate how insurance companies must legally adjudicate claims. The laws hold insurance companies accountable to the payment structures outlined in patients' health care plans."
In an evolving healthcare landscape, the importance of cogent analyses, such as Maldonado's, and companies like ANMM that use PPACA-savvy claims procedures to increase reimbursements, cannot be overstated. The payoffs of understanding PPACA, however, aren't merely, or only, financial, as Maldonado suggests in a remark that gestures towards ANMM's dual commitment to profitability and healthier patients: "When providers receive adequate reimbursement, they are...able to provide state-of-the-art care."
