It’s been a busy year in healthcare, but it’s not over yet—The American Journal of Managed Care invites readers to vote for the top healthcare story of the year.

The American Journal of Managed Care wants reader input on the most important healthcare story of 2015.

The cost of drugs has become a hot topic on the presidential trail. Obamacare survived another scare with the King v. Burwell ruling. And for the first in a while, doctors won’t end the year waiting for Congress to put another “patch” on the Sustainable Growth Rate formula, because it’s gone for good.

The American Journal of Managed Care is asking readers to help select the top story of the year by voting in an online survey at http://www.ajmc.com/poll. The choices (in no particular order), are:

  • King v Burwell decision upholds ACA subsidies
  • Healthcare mega-mergers reshape managed care (Aetna-Humana, Anthem-Cigna)
  • Pharmaceutical drug price hikes
  • CMS will pay for end-of-life care discussions
  • FDA approves PCSK9 inhibitors to treat high cholesterol
  • Healthcare transitions to ICD-10
  • American Cancer Society updates breast cancer screening recommendations
  • CMS announces timeline, goals to move to value-based payment
  • Congress repeals sustainable growth rate formula

The poll will be open for voting through Friday, December 18. Results will be published during the Christmas holidays.
