Paying for value equals better health.

Understand what health is (hint: it’s not just medical care). Pay for health. Start with children. We believe these three simple actions can change the health trajectory of our nation.


Well Beyond Medicine is the cornerstone of our organizational strategy.

To achieve our vision of creating the healthiest generations of children, we’re consulting with those who know children best — their families, educators and other supportive community partners — to ensure our perspective of health includes the 80% of impacts they experience outside our walls. We are also working with payers and policymakers to align how health is valued, incentivized and compensated.

This is accomplished through a partnership between Nemours Children’s Health and Discover Bank, allowing families who do not qualify for other assistance to access a loan and financial coaching
