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 coordinates treatments for patients among their many clinicians — has enjoyed significant bipartisan support, but we are still not where we need to be. Continued support from Congress and other policymakers is needed to change the future of healthcare for patients, providers, 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, alternative payment models have helped deliver better results for patients at lower costs, 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’ Support

Congress has taken significant steps to support value-based care, including extending critical federal incentives for participating providers. About 630,000 physicians and other clinicians depend on Congress’ support to provide high-quality, coordinated, and cost-effective care to millions of patients nationwide.
