The questions purchasers must ask their incumbent health plan to navigate a post-pandemic world
COVID-19’s transformative impact on the U.S. health care system generated new opportunities and exacerbated existing challenges for employers and other health care purchasers. CPR updated the 2021 Health Plan Renewal Questionnaire to help purchasers evaluate their health plans after an unprecedented year in health care.
CPR believes that purchasers who unite their voices send a clear signal and break through the noise. By asking your health plan to answer the critical questions in CPR’s Health Plan Renewal Questionnaire, you also become part of a larger movement – one that shines a light on the macro issues that contribute to health care purchasing’s status quo.
Use this Questionnaire to evaluate the health plan’s near- and long-term strategies to ensure its direction aligns with your organization’s purchasing strategy. It addresses what the incumbent health plan is doing to:
- Combat high and rising prices
- Address provider market power and competition
- Enhance price and quality transparency
- Reform payment and care delivery
- Innovate with benefit and network design
- Improve population health and increase health equity
- Comprehensively report and collaborate
- Support purchasers through COVID-19 and beyond
How to Use the Health Plan Renewal Questionnaire
This Questionnaire is an editable Word document that you can download and include with a fee quote request that you or your advisor send to your existing health plan partner. Simply download the Questionnaire and include it as an addendum to the fee quote request.
