Payment Reform 101

February 1, 2017  |  By: Education Foundation

Forty percent of commercial health plan payments are now tied to value-oriented payment methods. But these methods take on a wide variety of forms.

This webinar will cover the different types of value-oriented payment methods and what the evidence says about their ability to contain costs and improve quality long-term.

A wide range of methods will be analyzed as we examine:

  • Accountable Care Organizations, shared-savings and shared-risk payment arrangements
  • Payments for non-visits (e.g., patient-centered medical homes)
  • Bundled payments
  • Pay for performance
  • Capitation

Throughout, we will host an open discussion of how brokers should think about these methods and how they have the potential to improve quality and affordability.
