Transforming Pediatrics to Support Population Health Policy Brief - Everyone Benefits, So All Should Pay: Pediatric Primary Care Payment Reform

Health care reform efforts are committed to promoting health and well-being and ensuring long-term population health outcomes.  This is transforming how pediatric primary care providers are expected to deliver care.  This policy brief, Everyone Benefits, So All Should Pay: Pediatric Payment Reform, explains why it is important for all payers (Medicaid and private insurers) to work together to change how they pay for this care.  It is the first of two policy briefs in CHDI’s Transforming Pediatrics to Support Population Health series, developed with funding from the Connecticut Health Foundation and the Children's Fund of Connecticut.

A second brief, "Blended and Braided Funding: Sharing Costs Across Multiple Sectors," addresses the potential and challenges of blending and braiding funding from multiple sources to optimize children’s health and well-being. 

The policy brief series builds on recommendations published in," Transforming Pediatrics to Support Population Health: Recommendations for Practice Changes and How to Pay for Them." The recommendations were developed by a study group of providers, payers, foundations, policymakers, and parent advocates convened in 2018 by CHDI and the Connecticut Health Foundation, and facilitated by Health Law & Policy staff at the University of Massachusetts Medical School's Commonwealth Medicine.
