Affordability and ACOs

By on | No Comments

Question: What, if anything, will the Exchange do to promote Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)?

Answer: So far, the California Health Benefit Exchange Board has not discussed ACOs in public meetings. Yet, the Exchange must address affordability in order to meet the goal of increasing healthcare coverage. Affordability is often facilitated through innovation of benefit plan design and creative thinking about provider networks and delivery systems. ACOs offer significant potential for new forms of value-based plan designs which support affordability and quality of care. The exchange should consider working with California health insurance carriers to support this innovation.
