The success of the Affordable Care Act in expanding health care coverage and in reducing the uninsured by at least one-third is an historic achievement. But workers and their families who get coverage at work are still often stretched to the limit to pay for their share of that coverage. Without a massive shift from volume-based purchasing to value-based purchasing those people will never see relief from the crushing burden of excessive health care costs.
Buying Value is dedicated to this precise goal. We look forward to working with other stakeholders in the new network to optimize progress towards the Secretary’s goals.
