On Health Affairs ImageMonday, April 4, Health Affairs reported that one state’s Value-Based Insurance Design employee insurance program, which was designed to improve health while reducing costs, has successfully encouraged more use of screenings and preventive services, increased medication adherence for chronic conditions, and reduced visits to the emergency department.

Researchers from the V-BID Center say, not unexpectedly, that it’s too early to tell after two years of study if Connecticut’s Health Enhancement Program has saved the state money.

Their findings are reported in the April edition of Health Affairs.  The Health Affairs article and related materials can be found below.
