Demand to Pay for Care Quality, Not Quantity

We must stop paying for volume and start paying for value

Thirty cents of every dollar Americans spend on healthcare is wasted. “Fee-for-service” payment is a big reason why. It forces patients to pay a separate fee for each service – each test, each procedure, and so on. That’s appropriate in some cases. But in many other cases, there’s a better way. It’s called “bundled” payment, and it offers important benefits to patients and providers alike.

Join the battle to bring more bundled payment programs to your area.

Review State Scorecards

Our parent organization, the Altarum, has developed scorecards around issues such as physician quality transparency and cost transparency. The goal is to make this kind of information easy to access and use, since most healthcare providers do not offer this data willingly. After all, lack of transparency is the reason so many patients today are experiencing issues with our healthcare system!
