Our goal is to support policies and programs that resolve financial instability in the health care system; we do this through global assessment and strategic development of efficient, affordable solutions.
Current funding for and financial access to health care services are not sufficient, threatening Arkansans’ ability to receive high-quality care at affordable prices. The erosion of private sector financing increases Arkansans’ reliance on public sector programs. But public funding is limited and health care providers’ ability to provide uncompensated care is at a breaking point. That is why public and private health care payers in Arkansas are undertaking a new patient-centered payment strategy led by the Arkansas Department of Human Services to align financial incentives with quality outcomes. This strategy is designed to ensure that health care is both affordable for individuals, businesses, and the state and financially sustainable over the long term.
