States are seeking to control healthcare costs while improving outcomes and will need to focus on out-patient preventive care and coordination. Achieving these goals will require payment reform models that incentivizes and rewards high-quality, efficient care delivery.
Dr. Marc Berg, principal at KPMG and head of Strategy and Transformation for Health Care, wrote the article titled, “The Payment-Reform Prescription for Medicaid.” The article, published by Governing, details how states can reward prevention and improved health outcomes by changing the way they pay providers.
