The movement among employers to push insurers to adopt health plan benefit designs that improve medical outcomes without raising costs is slowly gathering steam, according to an employer coalition pushing payment reform.

While only 11% of payments that commercial insurers made to in-network providers in 2012 were “value-oriented,” according to a survey from Catalyst for Payment Reform, that’s more than halfway to its goal of 20%, which the group hopes to attain by 2020.
