AHIP Outlines Plan to Reduce Health Care Costs by $145 Billion
Date:5/29/2008

: Doctors and nurses need the freedom to practice medicine

without worrying about frivolous lawsuits.

1. AHIP Proposal: Reforming the legal system: Replace the current

medical liability system with a dispute resolution process consisting

of an objective, independent administrative process to provide quick

and fair resolution to disputes while promoting evidence-based

medicine.

-- Principle #4: Health insurance plans are transitioning to a system that

more closely aligns payments with the quality of care patients receive.

1. AHIP Proposal: Build health care reform around quality improvement by

rewarding safety, value and effectiveness: Work for the broader

adoption of value-based reimbursement mechanisms and provide

consumers with more actionable information about health care value.

-- Principle #5: The nation must move towards a system of care that focuses

on keeping people healthy, detects disease at the earliest possible

stage and rewards chronic care management.

AHIP Proposal: Enhanced disease management, care coordination and prevention programs: Deploy a new generation of strategies that emphasize prevention, improve chronic care and tailor healthcare for patients to help them live longer and stay healthier.

"The goal is to keep people healthy and health insurance plans have pioneered the next generation of cost containment strategies necessary to advance this objective," Ignagni said. "Health insurance plans have made measurable progress, but the nation needs a coordinated approach across the public and private sectors to maximize the impact of these strategies."
