Delaware Sets Primary Care Investment Target

In December 2020, Delaware’s Office of Value-Based Health Care Delivery issued a new report on healthcare affordability standards that includes plans to “more than double primary care spending in the commercial fully insured market by 2025.” The office set a provisional target to increase investments in primary care by 1% to 1.5% of total cost of care each year until 2025, thus increasing primary care’s percentage of total spending from 5% in 2021 to between 9% and 11% by 2025. The report asserts that this will bring the state “to levels consistent with leading models of comprehensive primary care delivery nationally.”
