CHBE to Discuss Contracting Strategies and Delivery System Reforms

The California Health Benefit Exchange (CHBE) Board will discuss Qualified Health Plan (QHP) contracting strategies and delivery reform expectations at its Feb. 21 meeting in Sacramento. The board will solicit input from stakeholders and experts through several panel presentations that will also cover public and private purchasing strategies. The presentations will be followed by reactions from health care leaders, including CHA President/CEO C. Duane Dauner.

For future board meetings, CHBE is considering using this reactor panel structure in addition to public comment periods already provided. CHBE also intends to continue engaging external stakeholders by holding small discussion groups across the state and developing standard questions to solicit input. CHA is currently working with members of the Insurance Reform and Coverage Workgroup to develop responses to questions related to QHP contracting strategies. The standard questions and meeting agenda are attached. The Feb. 21 meeting will be available via webcast on the CHBE website at Contact: Anne McLeod, (916) 552-7536,
