  • Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, Inc. Enhanced Drug-Pricing Transparency to Reduce Costs for Consumers and the State Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $123,207

    Rising prescription drug prices have become a major focus of public discourse over the past several years. While the costs of most prescription drugs have grown, the costs of specialty drugs have risen much faster than traditional medications. This is a result of a complicated system where patients pay coinsurance rates or deductibles at the pharmacy based on a drug’s full list price, rather than the lower rebated price that a payer has negotiated with the manufacturer. As a result, many patients pay more for drugs through their insurance plan than they would if they paid out of pocket without insurance. The higher costs borne by consumers often lead to higher rates of prescription abandonment. Although New York State has taken steps to address this issue by passing budgetary measures to cap the growth of prescription drug spending in the State’s Medicaid program, more needs to be done to protect health care consumers. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research (MI) a grant to research how transparency reforms would affect drug pricing and reduce patients’ out-of-pocket costs.

  • HonestHealth Are We There Yet? An Analysis of Health Care Cost and Quality Consumer Tools and Recommendations for New York State Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $228,388

    As a result of increased cost-sharing, consumers are eager for health care quality and price transparency tools to inform decision-making and allow for comparison shopping. An NYSHealth-funded survey by Public Agenda found that nearly half of New Yorkers have attempted to look up health care costs, but there is limited consumer awareness of websites that offer price or quality information. Additionally, the survey found that 80% of New Yorkers believe that the State should provide a way for consumers to compare health care prices. Despite consumer interest and some State efforts in this area, comparative health care quality and cost information remains largely obscured to the public. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded HonestHealth a grant to lay the groundwork for the State to provide timely, meaningful, and understandable information and enhance consumers’ ability to make informed choices.

  • Create a Healthier Niagara Falls Collaborative, Inc. Healthy Neighborhoods Fund, Phase 2 Priority Area: Building Healthy Communities $300,000

    Good health outcomes are more prevalent in neighborhoods where people have easy access to nutritious, affordable food; safe and walkable streets; and active playgrounds and public spaces. Living in neighborhoods without these essentials, residents are more likely to be burdened with high rates of obesity, diabetes, or other chronic illnesses. In 2015, NYSHealth launched its Healthy Neighborhoods Fund, an initiative to help six communities across New York State become healthier and more active places. This 2-year, $2 million investment has leveraged an additional $181 million in funding for these six communities, helping nearly half a million New Yorkers have greater access to healthy, affordable food and safe ways in which to be physically active. NYSHealth is continuing its commitment to the initiative by investing an additional $2.5 million over the next three years in these six communities. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded Create a Healthier Niagara Falls Collaborative a grant to continue its participation in the initiative.
