Payment Reform


Payment reform to support delivery system transformation is aligned across the Medicaid MCOs as it is embedded into the state’s managed care contracting design. While ACO payments flow from the MCOs, a driving measure of quality scoring (the VIS) is calculated through the state and is one of the factors upon which performance related payments are made. Engaging in risk based contracts with ACOs allows the MCOs to shift some care coordination responsibilities to ACOs.

Delivery System Reform


Delivery system transformation activities for SIM include supporting and equipping the system to adopt an ACO payment model and sustain its use. SIM provides technical assistance and tools to assist with this transformation.
