Sponsored by the National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH), eValue8™ is the nation’s leading, evidence-based request for information tool used to assess the quality of health plans. The eValue8 process allows participating purchasers and the top management of health plans to engage in direct discussions about expected health care provider performance. The Alliance, on behalf of its members, has worked with NBCH to conduct a rigorous evaluation of health plans in Washington state. The evaluation process aims to generate consistency in health plan assessment, stimulate improved performance from health plans, enable purchasers and plans to work collaboratively and inform purchasers’ procurement decisions.
