Identifying Innovative Payment Models for Federally Qualified Health Centers, 2014


Federally qualified health centers, an important component of the health care safety net, have come to rely on Medicaid’s system of payment on a per-visit basis. Under the Affordable Care Act, it will be important for states to identify alternative payment methodologies that promote value over volume in care delivery, while still continuing to shield health centers against losses from providing uncompensated care to the poor and uninsured. Through interviews with experts, a survey of state Medicaid officials, and case studies of high-performing health centers, this project will identify and assess these alternative payment models. The findings will alert policy leaders to opportunities for integrating health centers into an increasingly value-driven care delivery system.
