Reps. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) and Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) have introduced the Value-Based Insurance Design (V-BID) for Better Care Act of 2014,a measure that would establish a regional demonstration program for high-quality Medicare Advantage plans to utilize V-BID to reduce the co-payments or coinsurance for beneficiaries with specific chronic conditions.
