HCA updates Value-based Purchasing Roadmap, Apple Health Appendix

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Earlier this month, Health Care Authority (HCA) revised the Value-based Purchasing (VBP) Roadmap and VBP Apple Health Appendix. Through these documents, we continue to lay the foundation for how HCA and our partners are transforming Washington’s health and wellness system.

The roadmap describes how these activities will contribute to a healthier Washington:

  • VBP goals.
  • Purchasing and delivery system transformation strategies.
  • Innovation successes to-date.
  • Future plans to accelerate the transition into value-based payment models.

The roadmap also includes 19 “vehicles of transformation”, which are overviews of HCA’s top initiatives. These initiatives include our School Employees Benefits Board program, eliminating hepatitis C, integrated managed care, Medicaid Transformation, and much more.

The appendix describes how Medicaid Transformation is changing Apple Health. It also covers HCA’s VBP goals that managed care organizations and Accountable Communities of Health must achieve to earn incentives.
