"The Business Case for Payment Reform and What Idaho Medicaid is Doing"

Value is created when costs are reduced or quality is increased. It’s really that simple. But in the US, and here in Idaho, providers get paid more when they do more, and there is no change in payment when clinical outcomes are poor.

Medicaid’s payment reform initiative rearranges these dynamics into a system where providers are held accountable to manage cost and quality, and where payment amounts change based on a provider’s ability to deliver good results for both metrics. In this presentation we will review how Idaho compares to the rest of the nation and learn about three payment reform initiatives Medicaid will launch in 2019.
