Industry Collaboration Effort (ICE)

Brief Description
ICE, in partnership with NHF, seeks to provide more effective health care services to California ’s Medicare beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare+Choice programs. ICE is a voluntary healthcare industry working group that has mobilized industry stakeholders to streamline, simplify, and standardize regulatory policies and procedures that govern physician-provided health care services. A web-accessible database and associated web tools were created to facilitate communications and provide electronic linkage for physicians and health plans.
