    Your Benefit Board wants to keep offering good health care coverage without big increases in premiums or out-of-pocket costs. To do this, we need your help. We are asking you to join with us in putting quality first to help keep health care spending under control. We will be addressing the questions here as we design health plans for 2012 and beyond. Use these materials to join the discussion.
Basics of Quality Cost and Quality
Why Put Quality First?
Good quality care is good for you and a wise use of money spent on health care. Spending money on poor quality care hurts you and it hurts the PEBB group as a whole. Learn about the value of quality care.
What Does "Good Quality" Mean?
Getting good quality health care can help you stay healthy and recover faster. But how do you know if the care you get is good quality care?
What Types of Care Work Best?
What "works best" is care that gets the best results for your health, is safe, and uses health care resources in the most efficient ways. Evidence from medical research helps us know what works best.
Will You be Informed and Involved?
How do you know if you get the types of tests and treatments that work best for your condition? You need to be informed and involved in deciding what works best for you.
