Research and Markets: Baltimore, MD Healthcare Market Overview

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/x2f3v7/baltimore_md) has announced the addition of Decision Resources, Inc's new report "Baltimore, MD Healthcare Market Overview" to their offering.

Major Baltimore health systems continue to expand as they prepare for the commencement of Medicaid expansion and the statewide health insurance exchange. Following the Supreme Court decision that upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, more health systems and physician groups in the Baltimore market are indicating a willingness to participate in care coordination models such as accountable care organizations, bundled pay arrangments, and patient-centered medical homes.

Maryland is one of the leaders when it comes to ACO development, with several operating in the Baltimore market. Physician integration with the large health systems is high, and indications are that trend will continue as physicians seek more stable reimbursement arrangements. The healthcare market as a whole continues to experiment with new models to replace the fee-for-service arrangement that has been in place for decades.

Health plan enrollment has largely remained flat in the Baltimore market the past few years, but expect the larger MCOs to particpate in the exchange, which would expose them to potential new customers. Look for continued consolidation of Medicare Advantage plans in Baltimore.
