COMMIT TO A HEALTHIER AMERICA
Support value-based care.
Healthcare that ensures people get the best possible medical care for the money being spent is what everyone wants — the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
Incentivizing that kind of healthcare — care that is high-quality, well-coordinated, and cost-efficient — has enjoyed significant bipartisan support, but more must be done to build on this success. Continued support from Congress and other policymakers is needed to change the future of healthcare for patients, physicians and other clinicians, and taxpayers.
Why This Matters
Everyone wants affordable care that provides the best outcomes.
The U.S. healthcare system is at a crossroads, facing the growing needs of an aging population and an ever-rising price tag. Care that is affordable, proven to work, and tailored to a patient’s needs is a critical part of the solution. For more than a decade, patients, physicians and other clinicians, employers, and taxpayers have seen the benefits of value-based care models, but such a fundamental transition in the health system takes time and sustained investment. Congress must continue to support value-based care.
Millions of Patients and Thousands of Physicians and Other Clinicians Need Congress’s Support
Congress has taken significant steps to support value-based care, including extending critical federal incentives for participating providers. About 300,000 physicians and other clinicians depend on Congress’s support to provide high-quality, coordinated, and cost-effective care to millions of patients nationwide.
America cannot afford to take steps backwards.
