AHIP Outlines Plan to Reduce Health Care Costs by $145 Billion
Date:5/29/2008

oposal to guarantee access to health care coverage in the individual market and announced support for third party review of rescission decisions and their commitment to limiting pre-existing condition exclusions.

"The nation faces complex health care challenges and only an integrated strategy that addresses costs, quality and access will bend the cost curve and allow the country to ensure that all Americans have access to affordable health care," said Karen Ignagni, President and CEO of AHIP.

Disease management, care coordination, prevention, moving from paper to electronic transactions, transitioning to a value-based payment system, and addressing how new technology can be most effectively introduced into the system will allow the country to achieve more value for its health care investment. The AHIP proposal presents programs that are working now in these areas and maps out how the public and private sectors can work together to achieve these goals.

-- Principle #1: Patients and their doctors must have the information and

tools they need to evaluate treatment options and make health care

decisions on the basis of safety, quality and cost.

1. AHIP Proposal: Access to information that compares the effectiveness

and cost of treatments: Give providers, patients and purchasers

access to a trusted source where they can find up-to-date and

objective information on which health care services are most

effective and provide the best value.

-- Principle #2: Patients and doctors want an efficient, interconnected

health care delivery system that reduces medical errors.

1. AHIP Proposal: Health information technology: Encourage widespread

adoption of tools such as electronic health records (EHRs), personal

health records (PHRs), secure e-visits with physicians, and

e-prescribing.

-- Principle #3
