Health Plan User Group (HPUG) Toolkit

The Health Plan User Group (HPUG) Toolkit provides instructions on how your organization can partner with other employer customers of your contracted health plan to push for reforms to provider payment, benefit design, provider networks and price and quality transparency.  

How to use this tool:

Catalyst for Payment Reform conducts user groups with Aetna, Anthem, Blue Shield of California, and UnitedHealthcare but does not have the bandwidth to host additional groups.  For employers and other health care purchasers who have a shared agenda they want to foster with another health plan, the toolkit provides a step by step approach for developing and maintaining a user group.

Included in this tool:

The toolkit includes meeting agendas, sample communications, a model health plan user group progress report and more.
