Modeling the Impact of Changes to Medicare Payment Policy and Broader Payment Reforms


Achieving and sustaining a high performance health system will require changes in the way we pay for care, as well as incentives that encourage more appropriate, effective, and efficient care delivery. For this project, the Fund will select one or more organizations with the capacity to 1) model and analyze up to 15 policy options for reforming the way Medicare and other public and private insurers pay for care and 2) assess the impact of these reforms on payers, care providers, and patient populations. Based on these analyses, Fund staff, working with the grantee, will produce issue briefs and other publications to inform the debate over the best ways to slow the growth of public and private health spending while enhancing value.
