Behavioral Health Provider Participation in Medicaid Value-based Payment Models: An Environmental Scan and Policy Considerations
In recent years the drumbeat message has been that healthcare payments as we know it will change. No longer will payments remain strictly fee-for-service, with no accounting for quality of care; instead they will move towards value-based payment models that hinge payments, to one degree or another, on outcomes.
This has certainly been the case for physical health services, but what about behavioral health?
In the spring of 2019, the National Council for Behavioral Health partnered with the Center for Health Care Strategies to conduct an environmental scan of value-based payment models for behavioral health services. The culminating report, Behavioral Health Provider Participation in Medicaid Value-based Payment Models: An Environmental Scan and Policy Considerations, details existing models, where they are being adopted and highlights lessons learned and recommendations for state and federal policymakers.
Check out the report today and join us for a discussion of findings with the lead authors and reactions from panelists within the healthcare delivery system:
