A Primer on Value-based Strategies for Improving Financing of Care for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs

Authors: Comeau, M., Bachman, S.

Date: 2017

Project: The Catalyst Center

Keywords: CYSHCN, Financing, Health Reform, Maternal and Child Health

Value-based purchasing and value-based insurance design are gaining increasing attention as strategies for reducing health care spending and improving health outcomes – “value” being the operative concept. However, there is not enough evidence to date regarding the effectiveness of these strategies; what does exist is primarily focused on interventions impacting adults. This primer focuses on opportunities to increase value in spending on health services for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) through select alternative payment mechanisms and delivery innovations, and potential roles for Title V and family leaders in these efforts.

The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) encourages state Title V programs to partner with families, consumer groups, and others to advance their chosen National Performance Measures (NPMs). As the MCHB-funded national center for health insurance and financing of care, the Catalyst Center researches and disseminates state-level financing strategies aimed at improving health insurance coverage for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). Our work aligns with NPM #15: “Adequate Insurance Coverage: percent of children ages 0 through 17 who are adequately insured.” This policy brief describes Title V, family leader organization, and Medicaid partnerships that can help states make progress on improving access to adequate insurance for CYSHCN.
