HCA seeks input on VBP

The Health Care Authority released their value-based payment survey in July. This will be used to establish a baseline for VBP adoption and will serve as a critical progress tracking mechanism as we move towards the goal of 90% of all Medicaid contracts being value based. We care about this because as the state meets CMS goals, we earn waiver dollars. (And we are a region of high achievers.) To complete the survey, click here.
The VBP survey was developed with advice from HCA’s Medicaid Value-based Payment (MVP) Action Team, whose members represent a variety of provider organizations, Accountable Communities of Health, and Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs) from around the state. Our representative Mark Wakai, Chief Population Health Officer from Providence Health Care will be providing an update at the ACH Leadership Council in September. To make it fair, HCA also released a similar version of the survey to MCOs in June. The survey is open until August 25. To learn more, visit https://www.hca.wa.gov/about-hca/healthier-washington/paying-value
