Medicare Advantage: An origin story

Medicare Advantage has been around for decades, but how much do you know about this historic program? Learn directly from one of the driving forces behind Medicare Advantage, Tom Scully, former administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). He dives into the history of the program, how health plans have evolved over time and how value-based care models will shape the future of health care.

“I feel strongly that CMS should be regularly looking at reimbursement, regularly looking at things like risk adjustment, regularly looking at star ratings, and … as long as the plans have certainty and they can make a fair margin, they're going to love this business and that should be the goal.”
— Tom Scully, General partner at Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe
