Value-based Benefit Design AND Value-Based Payment Are Essential

National Business Coalition on Health: Over the past year, diverse policy centers and stakeholder coalitions including the Bipartisan Policy Center, Brookings Institution, The Commonwealth Fund, Kaiser Family Foundation, National Coalition on Health Care, Partnership for Sustainable Health Care, and Urban Institute presented plans for reforming the U.S. health care system. 

In a recent JAMA analysis of proposals from these respected organizations, value-based insurance design and value-based payment reform were unanimously included as key elements for sustainable health care. Administrative efficiency, spending limits, and Medicare reforms were also identified. 

The inclusion of value-based payment reforms and value-based insurance design in each proposal demonstrates the growing multi-stakeholder and bipartisan political consensus among experts that both are essential to a high-performing health care delivery system
