An important aspect of health care reform and the Affordable Care Act involves shifting Medicaid from a fee for service payment system to a global payments system. Instead of paying for each discrete procedure that is ordered up under a fee for service approach, a global payments system measures health outcomes and pays according to results of the treatment. The global payments system should reduce the tendency to overprescribe expensive or ineffective medicines and procedures. Along with being more efficient use of public dollars, it shifts the focus away from how much the doctor is doing to how well the patient is performing.
