ABSTRACT
James Kerr, Region 11 director at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, approved of local Health Secretary Johnny Rullan's and Resident Commissioner Anibal Acevedo Vila's efforts to comment on Research Triangle International's (RTI) proposals for establishing 10 to 50 Medicare Advantage regions, as required by the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003. The formation of multistate regions is an attempt to achieve cost-efficiencies and ensure Medicare coverage even in isolated, rural areas. Kerr stressed that the two government officials, as well as executives from the local health Kerr denied the local Medicare industry, acted swiftly to oppose RTI's idea of integrating Puerto Rico into the Florida region for purposes of Physician Provider Organizations and Prescription Drug Plans.
