Faculty: John Gorman, Founder and Chairman, Nightingale Partners

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated a number of key trends throughout the healthcare industry, including Social Determinants of Health initiatives. Even before the pandemic, Medicare Advantage and Medicaid managed care programs began moving aggressively to facilitate insurers and providers offering a range of services and benefits to address Social Determinants of Health, along with Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program that share many of the same incentives to address SDOH as insurers do. In addition, the 2017 tax bill contained a provision that created Opportunity Zones (OZs) designed to attract long term investment via tax incentives to address social and economic realities in high poverty communities, that are ideally suited to address SDOH initiatives.

A SDOH “arms race” is well underway throughout the healthcare industry, as the pandemic significantly escalates the need to address SDOH in the delivery of health care services and benefits.

What is the outlook for Medicare Advantage Supplemental Benefits and Social Determinants of Health Initiatives under the Biden administration in 2021 and beyond? This session examines the Biden health policy agenda; the prognosis for Medicare Advantage Supplemental Benefits and Social Determinant of Health Initiatives during the coming year; developments in the SDOH arms race and what CMS policy can be anticipated during 2021 in this arena.

John Gorman, a nationally recognized health policy expert in areas including Medicare, Medicaid, ACA and SDOH, provides his significant insights for the coming year. John is Founder and Chairman of Nightingale Partners, a Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund and advisory firm connecting capital to payers and care providers to the medically underserved. Nightingale endeavors to improve the quality of care and reduce unnecessary health care expenditures for impactable, high-utilizers through advanced technology, locally-curated social services providers, and innovative financing to address Social Determinants of Health (SDOH).
