What are Value-Driven Health Plans?

With most plans, providers set their own prices — and these prices can vary greatly.

Value-Driven Health Plans are a transparent way to determine the price of service by reimbursing providers based on the value and quality of care that they provide. HST’s pricing methodology uses Medicare+ and Cost+ information to determine a fair and reasonable price for medical service reimbursements.

The end result is a lower price based on value with a baseline that is transparent and fair for all parties.

But that’s only part of it. A Value-Driven Health Plan also engages the member and provider in making optimal use of plan benefits, leading to high provider acceptance and member satisfaction.
