Modern Healthcare cited findings from a HCFO-funded study by Matthew Maciejewski, Ph.D., Duke University and Durham Veteran’s Administration. In a systematic review of the peer-reviewed literature, Maciejewski and colleagues examined the patient and health care system benefits of value-based insurance design and found that lowering patient cost-sharing led to improvements in medication adherence and lower patient out-of-pocket spending, but it did not significantly reduce overall health care spending in the short-term.
