Narrow network: Buffalo style

A leading health plan and health system in Buffalo, NY are launching a narrow network-type arrangement aimed at self-insured employers. It’s an incremental move, as reflected by the fact that cost savings to purchasers are expected to be only in the single digits. Nonetheless it’s a step in the right direction toward cost awareness and care coordination that has the potential to boost quality and improve the patient experience.

I’m quoted in the Buffalo News article: BlueCross and Kaleida partner to form medical team, written by Henry L. Davis.
