How much and what types of payment reform are happening in Colorado’s commercial market? Is payment reform delivering on its promise of improving the quality and affordability of health care? As part of the Scorecard on Payment Reform 2.0 initiative, the Colorado Scorecard on Commercial Payment Reform brings together aggregate data from commercial health plans along with the state’s performance on leading indicators of payment reform’s impact at a macro-level.
Funded through a joint grant by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, the Scorecard is based on an independent review of data from commercial health plans that collectively insured 2,214,000 lives in the commercial market, which represents 78% of the commercial fully- and self-insured lives in 2016 , the year on which the Scorecard bases its findings.
The Colorado Commercial Scorecard, released in conjunction with the Center for Improving Value in Health Care as the local sponsor of the effort, sets out to provide baseline information for Colorado health care stakeholders in order to promote strategic action towards a more efficient and value-oriented health care marketplace.
