Since October 2008, we have published 85 almost weekly blog articles. Holidays and vacations and family illnesses have sometimes interrupted the flow, but I have not purposefully interrupted the postings until now.
Between now and the end of 2010, if I post a blog article, it will be brief and mostly focused on a link to other information that may be of use to you. I will start regular posts again in January 2011 after catching up on some other responsibilities.
For now, if you want to get lots more information about healthcare payers than you or any other provider ever wanted to know, you might consider reading and even subscribing to the FierceHealthPayer newsletter:
This newsletter focuses on the payer aspects of healthcare. If you can stand it, you will find lots of information . . . like how the medical-loss ratio (MLR) rule may or may not affect payers and which states are trying to get a waiver from the rule . . . that may be useful to your organization.
Thanks for reading and commenting. I will look forward to picking up where we left off in January. Please feel free to leave your comments below.
