Lessons in payment reform from ACHP plans

ACHP released a report yesterday detailing how seven member plans have transitioned from reliance on fee-for-service payment into value-based models that incorporate quality metrics, shared savings and care coordination.

With the release, we hosted a webinar featuring medical directors from Geisinger Health Plan, HealthPartners and Tufts Health Plan. All three panelists agreed: The transition requires collaboration with providers and meticulous and transparent metrics. They also agreed that promoting value over volume leads to better patient experiences and improved health outcomes.

The report highlights payment reforms currently in place at seven ACHP member organizations:

  • Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan (Albany, N.Y.)
  • Geisinger Health Plan (Danville, Pa.)
  • HealthPartners (Minneapolis, Minn.)
  • Independent Health (Buffalo, N.Y.)
  • Priority Health (Grand Rapids, Mich.)
  • Tufts Health Plan (Watertown, Mass.)
  • UPMC Health Plan (Pittsburgh, Pa.)
