Substance Abuse Treatment: In vs. Out of Network

December 11, 2017

“What is the optimal mix of in-network and out-of-network revenue?” It’s a question often asked by substance abuse treatment provider management teams and investors. Marwood believes there is not a universal optimal mix, but rather the right mix will vary based on local market demand, supply, and reimbursement dynamics, as well as the provider’s capabilities.

How Should Health Systems’ Reconsider Their Business Portfolios?

December 4, 2017

With declining inpatient revenues, many hospitals have acquired or developed ancillary health businesses to round out their portfolios in the past 10-15 years.  The rationale for these acquisitions varied by the type of business but has typically been to diversify income, drive inpatient referrals, and raise brand awareness with patients.  Examples of these ancillary service lines include diagnostic services (e.g., lab, imaging, speech and hearing testing), retail pharmacy, post-acute care, and health plans.

Washington Healthcare Report

October 1, 2017

Throughout 2017, Congress has focused in large part on repealing and replacing the ACA, and that now-stalled process has dominated both news cycles and investor attention.

With Congress back for the fall, however, the legislative agenda will likely focus on non-healthcare priorities for much of the time.  Key items will include keeping the government funded, raising the debt ceiling, providing disaster relief funding, and tax reform.  That said, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) must still be authorized and we expect at least some effort toward ACA market stabilization in the early part of the fall.
