After a rocky start resulted in just over 10 million people receiving vaccinations in the first month of rollout—well short of the stated goal of 20 million by the end of December—the U.S. vaccine distribution process is beginning to hit its stride. In the past week, at least a million people have been vaccinated each day—a pace that President Biden says he intends to maintain throughout his first 100 days in office.
But not all states have been equally successful in getting their populations vaccinated. This week, we'll take a look at how different states are handling the rollout and see how they're setting eligibility requirements, managing demand, and dealing with supply constraints.
We'll also discuss the new price transparency requirements that went into effect on January 1 and how we anticipate they'll change provider and health plan behavior—as well as examine the surprising new surprise billing legislation and the...unexpected ways it could change payer/provider negotiations.
