Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) Model
The VBID Model Explained
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has introduced various new ideas for Medicare Advantage (MA) health plans in the Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) model for the year 2020. This model is being tested by the CMS Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center), and the goal of the model is to save money in the Medicare program, enhance the quality of healthcare Medicare beneficiaries (including those with dual eligibility), and optimize the coordination and efficiency of healthcare service industry.
