Nielsen Comments on New Legislation Regarding Health Insurance

Updated October 25, 2017

Nielsen, MD, PhD, senior associate dean for health policy. “The first thing physicians have to understand — and most do not — is that this whole business of shifting to pay for value is not part of the ACA. It’s a completely different bill and was passed by 92 senators, so it’s a very bipartisan effort to try to shift payment away from fee-for-service,” she said.
