  5. Analytics Drove the Decision Target vulnerable population who have opportunity to improve • High medical and Rx expense • High utilization of hospitals and medications • Potential to reduce costs through interventions • Ability to improve conditions and reduce complications • Balance risk and reward • Large enough to be relevant…yet small enough to manage and minimize potential loss • Ability to influence behavior through sustained engagement • Chose the combinations of • CHF and Diabetes • CHF and COPD • CHF, Diabetes, and COPD

  6. Goals and Guiding Principles • Self-management for better health, improved quality of life, and reduced medical costs • Member Engagement and Education • Create simple steps to identify health issues and prevent deterioration • Focus on incremental changes that can be sustained • Provide members with meaningful rewards and positive reinforcement • Improve members’ understanding of their conditions, medication, and lifestyle choices • Health Plan Resources • Direct members to appropriate resources to address social determinants • Integrate with Plan-wide Population Health Strategy • Measure and Monitor • Use data to drive interventions

  7. VBID Model: Our Approach to Behavioral Economics Incremental Reward • In 2017 and 2018, checks were issued upon quarterly activity completion • In 2019, members are given an OTC debit card. Money is loaded onto the card upon quarterly activity completion

  10. Program Measurement

  11. Spark Your Health 2017

  12. 2018 program modifications • Limited time frame for modification with real time actionable changes • 2018 program changes due 1.31.17 yet only implemented on 1.1.17.  • Changes in program • Shorten the survey and combine with the Personal health Review (PHR) • Combined survey and assessment will be $50 reimbursement • Expect to see higher engagement now that members know they will be receiving checks for completing activities. • Flu shots will count as reimbursable activity ($25) • Working to maximize program engagement and impact

  13. Streamlined Process in 2018 Working to maximize program engagement and impact

  14. Changed incentive in 2019: Over-the-Counter debit card • Looking to make rewards more immediate • Focusing on health related items

  15. Step 1: Personal Health Review • Member calls Member Services to “opt in” • Case Manager calls to conduct assessment and Personal Health Review • Identifies additional information related to medical and non-medical determinants of health • Care Plan created in collaboration with the member

  16. Step 2: Personalized Quarterly Activities Based on PHR, CM recommends healthy activities, and the member selects activities from an approved list of options

  17. 2017 & 2018: VBID performance • Worked effectively • Data flow • Internal collaboration with all departments • Some positive member testimonials • Needed Attention • Enrollment process • Engagement • Incentive

  18. CMS Engaged RAND • CMS contracted with RAND to conduct onsite visits and learn more information about each participating plan’s VBID programs • The interviews focused on a series of topics including: • Motivation for joining VBID • Rationale for the conditions selected • Expectations about future VBID outcomes • Financial and actuarial assumptions • Application submission process and early implementation experiences • Communication strategies with beneficiaries and providers • Program design, care management approach, and administration • Challenges during early implementation

  19. Snap Shot • Member Profile • Total Eligible Population • Overall Engagement

  20. 2019: More Informed Decisions • Is this the right population? • Targeted population is very sick • Explore other diseases or model • What works? What doesn’t? • 2019 changes • Moved away from reimbursement checks to OTC debit cards • Members do not have to have OOP cost sharing to receive reward • Immediate rewards (upon activity completion) • Added activities (prescription for wellness, advanced care planning)

  21. 2020: Expanded Opportunities • UPMC program goals: • Improve clinical outcomes • Test innovations • Member retention • Reduce costs Permissible interventions: 1.Reduced cost-sharing for high-value services 2.Reduced cost-sharing for high-value providers 3.Reduced cost-sharing for enrollees participating in disease management or related programs 4.Additional supplemental benefits (non-health related)

  22. VBID looking ahead • Timing of VBID application • Overlap between VBID and Flex • VBID hospice • Continued program evaluation (RAND)
