States are critical partners in transitioning health care away from fee-for-service to value-based payments that focus on lowering cost, improving the quality of care, and producing better population health. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 set a clear path for Medicare to transition more payments to alternative payment models under the Quality Payment Program. However, state Medicaid programs also serve as important and complementary laboratories for testing health care innovation and identifying effective strategies to support an effective and sustainable transformation of the overall delivery system.
Please join us to hear from health care leaders about innovative value-based payment and care delivery efforts for Medicaid beneficiaries and their vision for the role that states and Medicaid can play to put patients first while lowering health care costs and improving quality.
