Linking Medicaid Payment to Quality at the Nation’s Community Health Centers

How state Medicaid programs are evolving the way they pay community health centers—care providers for about one of five beneficiaries in 2015—is the focus of a new To the Point post by Sara Rosenbaum and colleagues at George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health. The authors point out a key challenge to Medicaid payment reform at health centers: balancing the need to maintain sufficient revenue to care for uninsured patients while tying payment to improved quality and efficiency.

How states are meeting this challenge is detailed in an accompanying report, published by George Washington University and supported through a grant from The Commonwealth Fund and the RCHN Community Health Foundation.
