Report: CMS Should Integrate Social Factors Into Payment

As CMS re-evaluates its priorities under the new Biden administration, it should seriously consider making policy changes that integrate “drivers of health” (DOH) into payment policies for Medicare, Medicaid and the individual market, says a new report from four top independent health care foundations and think tanks.

The recommended changes would make it easier for insurers and providers to implement initiatives that address socioeconomic, environmental and behavioral factors that directly impact health, according to the report, “Investing in Health: A Federal Action Plan.” Manatt Health, The Health Initiative, Blue Shield of California Foundation and the Commonwealth Fund sponsored the report.
