White House Invites Providers to Join Conversation on Alternative Payment Models

As the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) continues its evolution away from fee-for-service payments and toward “value based” models, a new opportunity to shape that evolution is being offered to providers, payers, the public, and other stakeholders.

It’s called the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (Network), and APTA will be there from the start.

On March 25, HHS debuted the Network, which it describes as “a forum for public-private partnerships to help the US health care payment system (both private and public) meet or exceed … Medicare goals for value-based payments and alternative payment models.” Those goals call for 90% of Medicare payments to be tied to quality or value within 3 years.
