National Health Leadership Council tackles the use of financial incentives for health care consumers

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The non-profit National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH) recently convened its National Health Leadership Council (NHLC) to discuss an emerging trend in employer-sponsored health care: financial incentives for consumers to encourage the choice of healthier lifestyles and high value medical services and providers. This meeting of the NHLC, "Consumer Financial Incentives; Do They Work," included representatives from the nation's largest health care plans, provider organizations, health care accrediting organizations, consumer representatives, pharmaceutical manufacturers and health care purchaser representatives, including the purchaser-based coalitions that comprise NBCH's core membership.

The National Health Leadership Council is a multi-stakeholder arm of NBCH, open to any stakeholder group wishing to participate. It convenes twice a year to discuss cutting edge issues related to NBCH's core mission of value based purchasing. The group of health care leaders weighs in on emerging trends, and helps shape and influence employer purchasing decisions. The NHLC conversation and debate at the national level complements the multi-stakeholder partnerships emerging regionally and in local communities throughout the country, many led by NBCH member coalitions.

"All stakeholders should be at the table when we're discussing improving health and transforming health care," said Andrew Webber, president and CEO of NBCH. "We can no longer afford the blame game and pointing fingers. Instead we need to build a culture of shared responsibility, understanding that every stakeholder is part of the problem but also part of the solution."

In May NBCH will release a white paper on the issues discussed at this meeting which will be available on NBCH's website:
