Allison Rosen, MD, ScD, discusses the various patient and physician incentives that have been created to improve behavioral economics in diabetes. Dr. Rosen states that improving behavioral economics can be aimed toward patients by lower health insurance co-pays and toward physicians with a fee-for-service program.
Dr. Rosen says that in order to re-design health plans you have to identify patients with diabetes and able to target different incentives. For example, value-based insurance design (VBID) has recently had an uptake of programs that help reduce long-term complications and costs.
