Purchaser's Guide to Clinical Preventive Services
The National Business Group on Health recently released a "Purchaser's Guide to Clinical Preventive Services," which "contains the scientific evidence, recommended guidance, and detailed benefit language employers need to implement a comprehensive and structured clinical preventive services program within their medical benefit plan." The NBGH developed the Guide with technical assistance from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Guide is publicly available on the NBGH web site.
