NAHU spending $670,000 to educate brokers on value-based care

The National Association of Health Underwriters, with a grant of over $670,000 from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has begun working on a new program to educate brokers about “value-based care”.

Value-based care is a change in the doctor-patient model where instead of providers getting paid for each test, service, or exam performed, providers get paid based on patient outcomes.

The education efforts, NAHU said, will cover topics including value-based insurance design, new delivery models such as accountable care organizations and patient-centered medical homes, new payment mechanisms such as reference pricing, bundled payments and global payments, writing contracts for value-based contracting, and conducting market assessments.

NAHU will begin rolling out training online and in its print magazines in the coming months.
