Health insurers try paying more upfront to pay less later
from Minnesota Public Radio
Some health plans are beginning to offer free maintenance care for people with chronic health problems, hoping that spending a little more early on will save a lot of money in the long run. "We've been trying to change the health care conversation in the United States from how much we spend to how well we spend," said Dr. Mark Fendrick, head of the University of Michigan's Center for Value-Based Insurance Design. He said it makes both medical and economic sense to make properly managing chronic conditions affordable.
