Introduction to Value-Based Payment for Health Centers
What is Value-Based Payment and why are Health Centers Considering Payment Reform?
Value-based payment is a systematic method of paying for care that rewards the cost-effective improvement of the health and well-being of a population. Payment reform is changing current volume-based payment system to alternative payment models (APMs) that link payment to outcomes and align financial incentives with providing value.
By engaging in value-based payment models, health centers can lay the foundation for financial sustainability, high quality care, and engaged staff. This resource outlines value based payment and payment reform specifically tailored to the health center environment.
