    C.J. Bolster also happens to be the VP of a consulting firm that gets paid to teach businesses how to operate in an unfamiliar environment. Unfortunately, his assumptions are wrong.

    You will find no greater fan of innovation than me, but innovation cannot operate at its peak in a tightly regulated environment where there are price controls. Remember that millions of people that used to have private insurance will now be forced into Medicaid; and there is no money to be made in Medicaid.

    There is also no room for product innovation because government payers don't reward that; they reward what costs less, not what their patients want.

    Florida's own AHCA is notorious for its rigorous Medicaid rules, and yet it pays very, very poorly. The only thing that keeps it alive is that the Social Security Act requires a vendor providing a service to a Medicare beneficiary that has Medicaid to always bill Medicaid. That way there's that extra level of arcane rules to operate under.
