Quote of the Day

The value-based care agreement between Cigna Corp. and Fresenius Medical Care North America “makes FMCNA responsible for a much broader set of patient outcomes, quality and cost than we would be responsible for in the traditional fee-for-service world. As a result, we become the focal point for all medical care being provided to our patients, and it’s up to us to ensure they can access the care they need, when they need it — kidney related or otherwise.”

— William McKinney, president, Integrated Care Group at Fresenius Medical Care, tells Specialty Pharmacy News.
