Navigant Center for Healthcare Research and Policy Analysis Identifies Key Areas to Watch in 2015

Upcoming Supreme Court Ruling on ACA Subsidies and Medical Necessity Among Top Issues in 2015

Next year, the healthcare system will be front and center as the Supreme Court rules on the constitutionality of health insurance exchange subsidies and changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) continue. In addition, the ongoing rise of healthcare costs, acceleration of provider and payer consolidation and looming 2016 elections make 2015 a pivotal year for the healthcare industry.

To help understand these challenges and underlying trends, the Navigant Center for Healthcare Research and Policy Analysis has identified six key areas to watch in 2015:

“2015 is a watershed year for the healthcare industry. The uncertainty surrounding the ongoing implementation of the Affordable Care Act, shifting payment models, accelerated national and regional consolidation of large hospital and health systems and increasing emphasis on evidenced-based necessary care will have profound implications for payers, providers and patients,” said Paul Keckley, Managing Director of the Navigant Center for Healthcare Research and Policy Analysis. “Throughout 2015, Navigant Healthcare will be closely monitoring these changes and providing actionable, evidence-based insights on how stakeholders can best prepare for these regulatory and marketplace dynamics.”
