MSD Serves As Host for SS1 for SB 120 Bill Signing Event
Governor John Carney, Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long, Senator Bryan Townsend, Representative David Bentz, Delaware Health and Social Services Secretary Molly Magarik, Insurance Commissioner Trinidad Navarro and others who were instrumental, came to the MSD Building on Friday, October 1st to celebrate the signing of the primary care reform legislation, Senate Substitute 1 for Senate Bill 120. MSD members Nancy Fan, MD, in her leadership role with the Primary Care Reform Collaborative, and James Gill, MD were recognized for their involvement, expertise, and leadership in helping to educate legislators and administrators on the importance of primary care services. Primary care is the foundation for a trusted relationship in the health care system to help keep patients healthy. The bill is a step to ensuring access to high-quality, affordable health care. Insurance Commissioner Navarro indicated the legislation outlines a three-pronged approach for primary care reform: increasing the investment in primary care; creating cost containment mechanisms; and expanding alternative payment model adoption to ensure the investment made in primary care does not result in non-sustainable increases in total cost of care for patients and also does not increase insurance premiums.
