Join Crawford Advisors for this nationally recognized benefits and compliance webinar series.

Join this industry expert panel and moderator Patrick Haynes, Crawford Advisors Senior Counsel, as they review the differences and impact of Reference Based Pricing “RBP” plans and Value Based Purchasing “VBP” plans. These plans are currently a hot topic for Medicare, Medicaid, larger employers and leading carriers. Innovative RBP plans let employers pay a set amount for a medical service, asking workers who select costlier care to pay the difference. Value-based purchasing is a demand side strategy to measure, report, and reward excellence in health care delivery. Value-based purchasing involves the actions of coalitions, employer purchasers, public sector purchasers, health plans, and individual consumers in making decisions that take into consideration access, price, quality, efficiency, and alignment of incentives. Effective health care services and high performing health care providers are rewarded with improved reputations through public reporting, enhanced payments through differential reimbursements and increased market share. Some experts say these plans offer the potential to save billions of healthcare dollars, and our expert panel will discuss this and the following topics:

  • Differences between RBP and VBP
  • Transparency Tools
  • PPACA compliance with RBP/VBP plans
  • How do ACO's relate to these plans
