Podcast Episode: Can the “Equality in Medicare and Medicaid Treatment Act” protect human dignity?
Law Professor and bioethics expert Frank McClellan’s new book focuses on the importance of human dignity in healthcare. In this podcast he explores how the evolution of health systems has driven an agenda of cost-containment and shifted the burden of financial accountability, often compromising care management and widening disparities for the most vulnerable groups of patients. A new act aims to protect patients by requiring that the consequences of new payment models are researched and adjusted for by CMS, helping to build health equality across race, ethnicity, gender and geography. With policy expert Bill Finerfrock.
