Study touts Medicare Advantage’s role in moving to value-based care

Share this:


This Deloitte study says that Medicare Advantage can help engage providers to move more successfully into value-based care by better using technology and data.

One the study’s conclusions:

“Health plan respondents strongly believe that MA  {Medicare Advantage} presents great opportunities for VBC {value-based care} due to high per-member costs, disease burden and defined populations. In fact, health plan leaders expressed during the in-depth interviews that they believe contracting with MA plans is a better way for providers to develop VBC capabilities than starting with CMS. Unfortunately, few health plans are effectively conveying this message to providers. Despite the clinical and demographic similarities between MA and traditional Medicare patients, providers are more cautious about VBC arrangements with MA plans than with CMS. ”
