Monograph Examines Potential Savings From Reference Pricing
The Health Practice Council released a monograph, Estimating the Potential Health Care Savings of Reference Pricing, at the Annual Meeting and Public Policy Forum. The monograph examines the potential savings in health care spending from an expansion of reference pricing to a broader range of outpatient and inpatient services, along with factors that could hinder savings. Steve Jackson, the Academy’s assistant director for research (public policy), was the primary drafter for the monograph, and he led a spirited breakout session at which the new research was released. Members who were unable to attend the meeting can watch a replay of the session, which the Academy livestreamed on our Facebook page.
