Innovations in Payment Strategies to Improve Plan Performance

The National Academy of State Health Policy (NASHP) conducted a survey in the summer of 1999 of the 31 states known to be using financial penalties or incentives in their Medicaid managed care contracts. This paper is based upon information provided by the 28 states that responded and examines recent trends in the use of these financial tools in managed care contracts. It also details the experiences of three states – Iowa, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island – that have the most extensive experience with innovative payment strategies.
