KEY BRIEFING POINTS
- While proposals span different stakeholders and political ideologies, said Paul Ginsburg, they consistently called for the diminished role of fee-for-service models and the increased use of other payment approaches to promote coordination of care and improve patient outcomes.
- The policy community should help providers already using alternative payment models and those trying or willing to make the transition, Len Nichols stated. He also noted that both government and private payers should give providers incentives to meet global targets.
- Sheila Burke emphasized that in order to reform payment incentives and programs, proposals recommend linking payment to performance and focusing more on quality.
- Giving greater authority to states to innovate will improve Medicaid, Ginsburg stated.
I highly recommend Ginsburg's and Nuzum's slides.
