CED in the Private Sector (July 2010)

A briefing document exploring how CED could be implemented in private health plans.

CMTP developed this conceptual framework for a pilot project exploring coverage with evidence development (CED) among private health plans. The report reviews the barriers to implementation of CED and the conditions that may help move this potentially useful policy tool to reality. Overall, we found while private health plans are not optimally prepared for implementing CED, many of the perceived barriers are not insurmountable. There is a need for a better infrastructure to support cross-plan collaboration and the rapid and efficient identification and completion of research.
