What we're working on

Value-based purchasing (VBP) is a strategy the Health Care Authority (HCA) is using to improve the quality and value of health care services a person receives.

VBP Roadmap and Apple Health Appendix

The VBP Roadmap and Apple Health Appendix are the two main documents that guide our VBP efforts.

The VBP Roadmap:

  • Describes our key priorities for years 2022-2025.
  • Outlines VBP progress to date.
  • Highlights successes and challenges in implementing VBP.
  • Outlines ways to advance VBP.

The Apple Health Appendix describes how the Medicaid Transformation Project is changing Apple Health (Medicaid) in Washington State. It also covers HCA’s VBP goals that managed care organizations and Accountable Communities of Health must achieve to earn incentives.
