Quality Health Care Trumps Volume

The federal government’s drive to reshape health care in America continues to take shape with the latest shift to value-based payment.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently set a time line for having half of all Medicare payments based on the value of the care provided, not simply the volume of services. While CMS is often the leader in setting quality and value metrics, health plans have also set pay-for-performance metrics for their policy holders, and, most recently, the New York State Department of Health has set value metrics for Medicaid under the Delivery System Reform Incentive program.
