Reference-Based Pricing For State Employee Healthcare

States waste millions of dollars by not adopting best practices for employee health plans and taking resources away from public safety, education, and other priorities. Our reference-based pricing reform decreases spending at high-priced providers and low-cost or free care to reward patients who choose lower-cost providers. When state employees are incentivized to choose care options based on value, states save money and market-based pricing expands across healthcare providers, including in the private insurance markets.
