HCA announces public comment period for proposed Multi-payer Primary Care Transformation Model

Mon, 07/13/2020

Health Care Authority (HCA) invites you to provide public comment on the proposed Multi-payer Primary Care Transformation Model. The model was developed in collaboration with Washington State payers (health care plans) and primary care providers during the last year.

The public comment period ends on Friday, July 31, 2020.

What’s this model about?

Primary care is the foundation of our health care system—it is essential to better health outcomes, lower costs, and healthier families and communities. The Multi-payer Primary Care Transformation Model will serve as a framework that helps strengthen primary care through multi-payer payment reform and care delivery transformation.

The purpose of the model is to create better health and better care for patients, smarter spending, and improved clinical experience for providers.

Who should provide public comment?

This invitation is open to anyone who would like to share feedback. We encourage health care providers, Managed Care Organizations, hospitals and health systems, medical associations, Tribes, Accountable Communities of Health, and the public to provide input.

Your feedback is important! It will help HCA and our partners to further develop this model, and improve the health and health care delivery for Washington residents.
