Delaware is establishing a health care spending benchmark.
Delaware’s per-capita health care costs are more than 27 percent above the U.S. average. Although our costs are high, our overall health ranking is low. The health care spending benchmark will drive changes to make care better while controlling costs. The quality of care will be improved by:
- Paying for value
- Educating Delawareans on how to make better health care decisions
- Reinforcing healthy choices
- Supporting improvements in primary care practices
