We welcome back our good friend Zack Buck, Professor of Law and Wilkinson Junior Research Professor at the University of Tennessee College of Law. He teaches bioethics and public health, torts, health care finance and organization, health care regulation and quality, and fraud and abuse. He is producing cutting edge research on the relationship between reimbursement systems and healthcare price and cost issues.
Our conversation includes some compelling “lightning” stories, including wellness plans, Maryland’s potential state mandate, the Health Affairs retirement of the great Tim Jost, and Medicaid work requirements. Then Zack demonstrated his true mettle, answering questions about MACRA/MIPS, value bundle reimbursement models, and state law attempts to reel in drug costs.
On that last topic: past show guests Aaron Kesselheim and Ameet Sarpatwari will be speaking at Maryland Law on March 8th, along with other health policy superstars; more details to come!
