The Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) Model team at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) and the Administration of Community Living (ACL) led a discussion on how VBID flexibilities are being leveraged to improve equity in transportation access at our Health Equity Incubation Program webinar event on Thursday, September 15, 2022, from 3-4:30 PM ET.
This event, the third in VBID’s series of Heath Equity Incubation Program (HEIP) webinars, began with an overview of the vital need and opportunity to address transportation barriers for Medicare beneficiaries as a means to improve health equity and beneficiary experience. The session started with a presentation by a panel of national experts highlighting the trends in transportation access, the economic and health burdens of transportation barriers, and evidence-based strategies to reduce transportation barriers. Next, the VBID Model team summarized how flexibilities in the VBID Model can be used to improve access and equity in care of enrollees facing transportation barriers. The webinar also featured a panel of leaders from UnitedHealth Group and Medical Card System to discuss their programmatic strategies, successes and challenges in using VBID flexibilities to improve transportation access for their enrollees. Following the panel discussion, the session concluded with an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.
