Optimal medical therapy for patients with type 2 diabetes and small amounts of protein in their urine reduced hospitalization for heart failure by 70% over 21 years. Heart failure patients account for 34% of Medicare spending. OMT is a systematic approach that can be replicated, scaled, and delivered by teams of nurse practitioners. Why wouldn’t you do that in your Medicare Advantage program?
