As the traditional health care payment and delivery system continues to shift to more value-based, accountable structures that incentivize care coordination and cross-sector partnerships, it is increasingly important for area agencies on aging (AAA) and other community-based organizations (CBOs) to understand this new landscape, so that they can prepare themselves to capitalize on the opportunities it represents.
This presentation, part of n4a’s 2017 Aging Policy Briefing, presents a high-level overview of new Medicare changes that are affecting how providers get reimbursed, with a focus on the landmark Medicare and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). Attention is paid to how and why this shifting payment landscape opens up new opportunities and challenges for CBOs looking to collaborate with health care in a profitable and mission-driven way that will increase their sustainability and position them to bolster their services.
