Advancing Value-Based Payment in Medicaid Managed Long-Term Services and Supports: Opportunities for Community-Based Care

  • This event has ended.


Many Medicaid programs are adopting value-based payment (VBP) models to reward value over volume, but only a few states have focused these efforts on long-term services and supports (LTSS).  This webinar, made possible by the West Health Policy Center, will explore opportunities for states seeking to adopt value-based payment models for home-and community-based services (HCBS) in managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) programs. It will feature experiences of two leading states, New York and Tennessee, which have implemented innovative payment models in their MLTSS programs. The webinar will examine considerations for selecting quality metrics and payment models for use in these programs. It will also describe common program and policy challenges that these states have faced in developing these models, and the strategies used to address them.
