Webinar: VBID Model Health Equity Incubation Program - Leveraging VBID Flexibilities to Improve Equity in Housing Stability and Quality
The Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) Model team at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) held a discussion of how VBID flexibilities are being leveraged to improve equity in housing stability and quality at their webinar event of the Health Equity Incubation Program on Thursday, December 8, 2022, from 3-4:30 PM ET. This event, the fourth of the VBID Model’s Heath Equity Incubation Program (HEIP) webinars, started with presentations from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Division of Energy Assistance within the Office of Community Services in the Administration for Children & Families (ACF), and the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity (OCCHE), highlighting the health and economic burdens of housing instability, the importance of utilities assistance, and impacts of climate change on housing stability and quality. Next, the VBID Model team summarized how flexibilities in the VBID Model can be used to improve access and equity in care for enrollees facing housing instability. The webinar also featured Medicare Advantage leaders who discussed their programmatic strategies, successes, and challenges in using VBID flexibilities to improve housing stability and quality for their enrollees. The session concluded with an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.
