OBJECTIVES: Vaccines are recognized as the most effective strategy for long-term prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) because they can reduce morbidity and mortality. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate willingness to pay (WTP) for a future COVID-19 vaccination among young adults in Southern Vietnam. METHODS: A cross-sectional, descriptive, and analytic study was undertaken with data collected from a community-based survey in southern Vietnam for 2 weeks in May 2020. The contingent valuation method was used to estimate WTP for COVID-19 vaccine. The average amount that respondents were willing to pay for the vaccine was US$ 85.9 2 ± 69.01. RESULTS: We also found the differences in WTP according to sex, living area, monthly income, and the level of self-rated risk of COVID-19. CONCLUSION: Our findings possibly contribute to the implementation of a pricing policy when the COVID-19 vaccine is introduced in Vietnam.

Value-based care within insurance design utilizes evidence-based medicine as a means of defining high-value versus low-value diagnostics and treatments. The goals of value-based care are to shift spending and coverage toward high-value care and reduce the use of low-value practices. Within oncology, several value-based methods have been proposed and implemented. We review value-based care being used within oncology, including defining the value of oncology drugs through frameworks, clinical care pathways, alternative payment models including the Oncology Care Model, value-based insurance design, and reducing low-value care including the Choosing Wisely initiatives.
