For Immediate Release
Washington, D.C. – America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) President and CEO Karen Ignagni released the following statement in response to today’s announcement by the Department of Health and Human Services on payment reform goals for the Medicare program and creation of a new Health Care Learning and Action Network:
“Advancing a patient-centered health system requires a fundamental transformation in how we pay for and deliver care. Today’s announcement by Secretary Burwell is a major step forward in achieving that goal. Health plans have been on the forefront of implementing payment reforms in Medicare Advantage, Medicaid Managed Care, and in the commercial marketplace. We are excited to bring these experiences and innovations to this new collaboration.”
Over the next week, AHIP will highlight health plans’ innovative payment and delivery system reforms happening across the country. By partnering with providers and hospitals in new care coordination models, health plans are transcending the antiquated fee-for-service model and promoting patient-centered care delivery.
