Shatter This

More important than a single health insurance plan, Shatterproof, starting this year, enters pilots with New York, Massachusetts and Louisiana to deploy its principles of quality care for addiction treatment as a guide for insurers, physicians, hospitals and ultimately families facing addiction, according to Jasmine Bass, a spokesman for the non-profit. Shatterproof has ~19 insurers signed on, including the BCBS Association, with a goal of eventually using state scoring of treatment programs to advise consumers via a national online portal on where to go for treatment in their area – think ‘the Mayo of addiction treatment,’ but based on a national set of data. Winners are those who make their way onto the list, several insurers confirmed to us at the meeting. A rollout to other states is likely, Bass said.
