Addiction payment reform: Why now and how?

Original Air Date: September 4, 2020

Unlike many other chronic conditions—where “standards of excellence” inform consumers, health systems, and payers about best practices and services that should be available—today’s recovery services are delivered through a method often lacking alignment or integrated economic structures that incentivize long-term recovery.

The Alliance for Addiction Payment Reform, which brings together stakeholders from across healthcare, is leading the charge towards system change that incentivizes recovery by aligning incentives with best practices that produce improved outcomes for patients, payers and health systems.

Francois de Brantes, Senior Vice President, Signify Health talks with Greg Williams, Managing Director of Third Horizon Strategies and Manager, Alliance for Addiction Payment Reform about why now is the time for market-driven transformation and the path forward to achieve it.
