Off-Network: Value-based Payment Strategies

July 29, 2020

Preferred provider networks have traditionally been favored by employers for providing broad provider access to members across large geographies. However, provider networks are not necessarily built to manage costs and quality given fee-for-service reimbursement arrangements and the inability to steer to high quality providers in the network. Innovative purchasers focused on driving higher quality and lower costs in their health plans are actively seeking ways change how providers and hospitals are paid to ensure that incentives exist to lower costs and drive high quality patient outcomes.

Join us and special guest Lester Morales of Next Impact as we expose the reasons why traditional forms of healthcare purchasing are ineffective and may actually be contributing to higher plan costs. We’ll discuss alternative payment strategies that align incentives to promote greater value in the form of higher quality and lower costs for healthcare.

Direct Primary Care: From Loss Leader to Quality Care Catalyst

June 24, 2020

Arguably one of the greatest dysfunctions of the U.S. healthcare system is the demoted position of primary care. Unfortunately, primary care has been relegated as a sort of “loss leader” in the healthcare delivery system, designed to serve as a referral source to higher cost specialists or facilities rather than allowing doctors enough time to treat patients holistically on the front-end. The Affordable Care Act rightly promoted the importance of primary care by eliminating cost for preventive services, but this is not adequate by itself.

Join us as we explain the importance and value of primary care and outline strategies that promote its use through plan design and direct care arrangements.

The Six Percent: Managing High-Cost Outlier Claims

May 27, 2020

Did you know that, for most health plans, a mere 6-8% of covered members account for 80% of total claims spend? One of the foundational strategies behind value-based purchasing is focusing on reducing the frequency and severity of high cost claims. In other words, focus on the 6% of your members driving the majority of your costs and claims volatility in your plan.

Join us as we expose this prevalent challenge and debunk the myth that employers are helpless when it comes to managing the risk of high cost outlier patients.
