2018 Virginia Scorecard on Commercial Payment Reform

2018 Virginia Scorecard on Commercial Payment Reform

How much and what types of payment reform are happening in Virginia’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 Virginia Scorecard on Commercial Payment Reform brings together aggregate data from commercial health plans along with the Commonwealth of Virginia’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 3,850,000 lives in the commercial market, which represents 72% of the commercial fully- and self-insured lives in 2016 , the year on which the Scorecard bases its findings.

The Virginia Commercial Scorecard, released in conjunction with the Virginia Center for Health Innovation and the Virginia Association of Health Plans as joint local sponsors of the effort, sets out to provide baseline information for Virginia health care stakeholders in order to promote strategic action towards a more efficient and value-oriented health care marketplace.
