Congratulations to the six states selected to participate in the NASHP Value-Based Payment Reform Academy:
- Washington, DC
NASHP is pleased to announce it is convening a Value-Based Payment Reform Academy. The goal of this academy is for selected states to develop and implement value-based alternative payment methodologies (APMs) for federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and rural health clinics (RHCs) that support their goals for transforming how care is paid for and delivered.
For the purposes of this academy, NASHP defines value-based APMs as those that incentivize value over volume, promote the delivery of comprehensive, coordinated, and patient-centered care, are tied to quality and efficiency, and meet the requirements for FQHC and RHC reimbursement under current federal law (Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP Benefits Improvement and Protection Act of 2000).
NASHP will select up to six (6) states to receive 12 months of targeted technical assistance to support the development and implementation of value-based APMs. Technical Assistance will include:
- Access to expert consultation from national, federal, and state leaders
- In-person site visit to your state from NASHP staff
- Small group state-to-state learning opportunities
- Travel support for four team members to one in-person kick-off meeting
- Ongoing access to NASHP staff
The Academy will run from May 2016 through May 2017. Please contact Rachel Yalowich (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions about the request for applications or the application process.
NASHP hosted an informational webinar on March 10, 2016 from 2:00-3:00pm ET, which provided more information about this Academy and answered audience questions. To download the slides, click here. To view the webinar, click here.
