High deductible health plans (HDHPs) have been an important tool to address rising premiums, but they do so by shifting costs to consumers and by lowering the utilization of both high-value and low-value care. Altarum launched Medical Episode Spending Allowance (MESA) Plan, a new value-based insurance design with more finely calibrated incentives for consumers and providers. MESA takes value-based insurance design to a whole new level, improving quality of care while lowering costs. This brochure explains the plan and its benefits.
