CMS Signals Reevaluation of Bundles: How States Are Filling the Void

November 15, 2017 2:00-3:00pm ET / 11:00-12:00pm PT

As CMS continues to evolve its value-based payment (VBP) goals, more states are focusing on their own initiatives. Produced in partnership with the HealthCare Executives Group, this webinar will provide an overview of state-level VBP strategies and explore the state of Tennessee’s value-based payment initiatives.

Presenter Lisa Conley, Government Affairs Specialist at Change Healthcare, will share the results of her latest research into state VBP strategies.

Presenter Brooks Daverman, Director of Strategic Planning and Innovation for the Tennessee Division of Health Care Finance and Administration, will discuss lessons learned from the introduction of episodes of care and the application of other VBP strategies in TennCare, the state’s Medicaid program.

Mr. Daverman helped develop and launch Tennessee’s Health Care Innovation Initiative, a partnership which aims to facilitate the state’s transition from a volume-based to value-based payment model. Partners include TennCare, CoverKids, Tennessee Hospital Association, Tennessee Medical Association, the state’s four largest insurance carriers and its employee benefits administration.
