Value-Based Purchasing for Managed Long-Term Services and Supports

Tuesday, October 24th

While value-based purchasing (VBP) has become fairly common for medical care, only a handful of states have adopted this model for Medicaid Managed Long-term Services and Support (MLTSS) contracts. Speakers discuss strategies their states are using to introduce VBP into MLTSS — including contracting levers, payment methods, and quality measures — and share the early results of their efforts. Speakers include a consultant working with states to design and implement VBP initiatives, and two state officials who discuss their states’ experiences.
