December 1996 AAOS Report

Health Policy Update available on home page, fax-on-demand

Health Policy Update now is available on the Academy's home page and fax-on-demand system. Developed by the Academy's health policy department, each update will cover a different topic relating to current changes in health care due to the growth of managed care. Legal issues and payment trends also will be addressed as well as a variety of topics on physician network arrangements. Each Health Policy Update includes a brief discussion, points for orthopaedists to consider and a listing of reference articles. Three Health Policy Updates currently are available: "Direct Contracting for Orthopaedists," "Medicare Managed Care Competitive Bidding Demonstration" and "Beneficiary Access Under Medicare Managed Care." They are available by accessing the AAOS home page at http://www.aaos.org in the "Health Policy Federal and State, Board of Councilors" section.
