Benefit Design and Payment Reform: A Powerful Pair for Change

February 1, 2017  |  By: Education Foundation

No discussion of payment reform is complete without addressing benefit and network designs. How can these methods help or hinder various payment reforms?

When the right payment method is paired with the right benefit or network design, they can work together to help reduce costs and improve care.

In this webinar, we’ll dissect three examples of payment-reform approaches that pair well with specific benefit/network designs:

  • Reference pricing and bundled payment
  • Value-based insurance design and care-coordination fees or shared savings
  • Tiered and narrow networks and pay for performance.

Join us as we discuss how brokers and their clients can take the next step to implement one or more of these powerful pairs.
