States Have Numerous Roles in Fostering Multi-Payer Payment Reform Extend Beyond Funding
This webinar highlights the roles of different state agencies in multi-payer payment reform, and demonstrate collaboration between distinct state agencies during design and implementation of delivery system reform. Beginning with an overview on the role of state Medicaid agencies in advancing statewide health transformation, the webinar features representatives from the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance in Montana, Office of Employee Health & Benefits in Maine, and Department of Health in Vermont. This diverse trio of state officials each tell the story of how their agency played a critical role in collaborating with multi-disciplinary colleagues and developing and implementing a multi-payer model.
