NBCH Calls for Cost Containment and System Transformation in Health Care Reform Legislation
Date:8/6/2009

comparative effectiveness and performance of health services and providers; 2) making such information easily accessible and transparent to the public; 3) reforming the fee-for-service payment system; 4) empowering consumers to make better and more informed choices along the full spectrum of their health and health care journey; and 5) creating a failsafe mechanism and establishing an independent entity to insure that serious cost containment measures are taken in response to escalating health care costs.

Employers to share in fiscal responsibility

NBCH supports the laudable goal of universal coverage. As representatives of employers that provide health insurance to their employees and dependents, NBCH and its member coalitions are keenly aware that 47 million uninsured Americans create market distortions and shifting costs in the system that negatively impact the employer community. NBCH also recognizes that paying for the uninsured through emergency room and hospital visits is both poor quality and inefficient. NBCH believes that many employers are ready to share in the fiscal responsibility for extending coverage to all Americans but only if real cost containment through value based purchasing is a core element of reform legislation.
