WHEREAS Club 20 recognizes that managed care is an important part of the health care system by reducing to consumers overall costs of maintaining the system and providing more competitive pricing and comprehensive health services;
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Club 20
- Supports basing health care services on a standard of medical necessity for care and treatment, using appropriate medical protocols and reducing inappropriate and excessive utilization of the system,
- Believes that prevention, disease state management, and population health management programs that will result in healthier citizens, lower costs and more efficient health care system in the long run should be encouraged, and encourages all providers and payers to work together collaboratively in population health efforts; and
- Believes that health plan carriers should be encouraged to remain in, or return to, rural Colorado markets in order to develop greater competition, and
- Supports enforcement of existing statutory requirements that all proposed mandated benefits demonstrate cost effectiveness and contribute to better health outcomes before they are considered.
