AJMC: Medical loss ratio creates a perverse incentive to spend more

This past fall, I participated in a series of discussions hosted by the American Journal of Managed Care about health reform and the changing health insurance and delivery landscape. The video below is one exchange from the series, focused on the medical loss ratio regulation as well as price and quality transparency and the ability of patients to use such information.

I was joined by

  • Leah Binder, President and CEO of The Leapfrog Group
  • Margaret O’Kane, President of the National Committee for Quality Assurance
  • Matt Salo, Executive Director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors
  • Dennis Scanlon (moderator), Professor of Health Policy and Administration and Director of the Center for Healthcare and Policy Research, College of Health and Human Development, The Pennsylvania State University

I’ll post other videos from the discussion series, but if you can’t wait, you’ll find a couple more here.
