Reducing Overpayments in Medicare through Site-Neutral Reforms

Senior Policy Analyst at Paragon Health Institute

Joe Albanese is a Senior Policy Analyst with Paragon Health Institute. He comes to Paragon with over six years of federal and nonprofit public policy experience.

Medicare currently pays providers differently for an identical service to an identical patient based simply on the building it takes place in. Policymakers have taken some steps to change this, but more can be done. Enacting “site-neutral” policies across health care settings can save taxpayers and patients money without sacrificing quality and can fight provider consolidation.
