How is Your Health Plan Accelerating Value?

Posted By Louise Probst, Wednesday, August 2, 2017
When it comes to shaping desired behaviors, incentives matter. Whether you're the parent of a small child or the CEO of a large corporation, you know the power of this tool.

This is no less true in today's health care space, where aligning provider pay with outcomes is key to achieving higher-quality, affordable care. One need not look further than CMS' quality improvement program, which linked incentives for achieving good health care outcomes to bundled payments, quality bonuses, and other risk-based arrangements. What's clear from the data is that plans such as Medicare Advantage, which put providers at risk for clinical outcomes, have out-performed private insurance on a number of quality indicators.

So what, exactly, are private sector payers doing to leverage best practices for clinical care and reward value over volume? How can you, the employer, know that you've selected the health plan that will put your health care dollars to work wisely? The BHC is offering members an opportunity to hear directly about these issues from the medical and marketing directors of Aetna, Anthem, Cigna and UnitedHealthcare, and to then pose questions to the CEOs of these companies as they sit side-by-side.  

The Member Meeting on August 10th will provide a unique forum where major St. Louis area insurers discuss their strategies for designing payments to improve provider performance. It also offers you a rare opportunity to make clear how important it is that your employees benefit from the latest innovations in clinical care. There's still time to register! Check out the agenda here.

Warm regards,

Louise Probst

BHC Executive Director
