Opening Discussion Topic:
Our Featured Speaker, Stephen Goff, King & Spalding’s ‘Best of the Bar’ healthcare negotiator, has been working with providers to negotiate capitated rates since the ’90s, and more recently, he’s developed a deep expertise in all aspects of value-based contracting. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act’s emphasis on ‘Value over Volume,’ through Alternative Payment Models and other Value-Based Programs, the percentage of CMS’s payments tied to value-based care rose from 23% in 2015, to 34% in 2017; with 50% targeted.
On the commercial side, The Health Care Transformation Task Force (a consortium of major providers, payers, and purchasers) late last year announced that its provider and payer members had converted 47% of their businesses to value-based payment arrangements in 2017. And for 2020, the Task Force’s members have a goal of reaching 75% value-based.
