Thursday, August 24th | 2:00 PM – 3:15 PM ET
States are increasingly focused on value-based payment reform as a strategy to support care delivery to patients that improves quality and lowers costs. Over the last 15 months, NASHP has convened state Medicaid agencies, primary care associations, and federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) through its Value-Based Payment Reform Academy, supported by HRSA. The goal of the Academy is to provide technical assistance to six states to support the development and implementation of value-based alternative payment methodologies (APMs) for federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) within Medicaid.

During this national webinar, held on August 24th at 2:00 pm ET, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the models two leading states are using to approach value-based alternative payment for FQHCs. Shane Mofford from Colorado will talk about the development of a per member per month payment model with a small quality bonus, in lieu of encounter-based payments through the prospective payment system.  Deanna Mills from the Federally Qualified Health Center Urban Health Network in Minnesota will highlight its participation in the state’s Medicaid accountable care organization program, which includes the potential to earn shared savings by meeting cost and quality targets. This work is supported through NASHP’s National Organizations of State and Local Officials (NOSLO) Cooperative Agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration.
