As healthcare costs continue to rise and stakeholders maintain focus on improving care quality and outcomes, payers are turning to value-based payment (VBP) as a critical tool for boosting delivery system performance. As the nation’s largest health insurer, Medicaid is no exception to the growing trend of rewarding value. Across the country, state Medicaid agencies are seeking to increase provider accountability for both the quality and cost of care—and many of the 39 states with comprehensive, risk-based Medicaid managed care are using those programs to help achieve their goals.
Exactly how are states leveraging Medicaid managed care to advance VBP? Manatt answered that critical question in an all-new webinar—the final in our Medicaid managed care series. We want to be sure you don’t miss any of the important information shared during the program.
