2016 - $62,727

NYU School of Medicine was awarded a one year $62,727 grant for their “Using Value-Based Insurance Design to Mitigate Health inequities in CT” project. Through this grant, NYU’s Department of Population Health proposes to partner with and provide valuable research for the Value Based Insurance Design (VBID) workgroup of the State Innovation Model (SIM). The goal of the SIM’s VBID workgroup Is to create insurance plans that incentivize patients to seek preventive, high value health care services by lowering their out of pocket expenses for these services. Through this project, NYU will provide SIM with an “evidence-based toolkit” for employers.
