Medicare to Start Paying Doctors Who Coordinate Needs of Chronically Ill Patients This seems like an excellent idea, but I would like to see more details before making final judgement. Does any two chronic conditions qualify for this level of care. Are there some cases, where the two conditions may be of little consequence that it may result in over-treatment. Are there ways to make the coordination more effective than others. Does this new policy provide guidance on that dimension.
