City Slashes Healthcare Costs By Improving Health Benefits


At a time when virtually every municipality is finding ways to cut back health benefits in order to balance their budget, the city of Kirkland, Washington decided to create a moonshot goal -- slay the healthcare cost beast while simultaneously improving the health of the city employees. As has been demonstrated time and again, a value-based primary care model is foundational to a proper healthcare delivery system. This is a stark contrast to the common situation where primary care is a loss-leader making primary care unattractive and leading to shortages of primary care in some communities.
The so-called "death of primary care" has actually been more of a resurrection. It’s understandable that people think primary care is dying when the flawed fee-for-service reimbursement scheme has turned primary care into milk in the back of the store. That is, the reason health systems have gobbled up primary care docs is they use them as loss-leading referral machines to high-margin procedures, tests and consultations. The result is predictable-purchasers of healthcare are getting milked.
