NEHI's Vice President of Policy Research, Tom Hubbard, participated in the panel discussion "Obesity Care : Payment and Benefit Design Innovations to Improve Prevention and Treatment of Obesity."
In contrast to a one-size fits all cost sharing approach that could reduce the use of high-value services and worsen health
disparities as it relates to obesity, there is an important opportunity for V-BID to address this growing chronic illness. Recent studies have shown that reducing financial barriers to improve medication adherence in particular can havea significant impact on patient centered outcomes for those with obesity. This panel explored a range of V-BID approaches focused on addressing obesity as well as current health equity implications.
