ACC Payment Reform Initiative (HB12-1281)
House Bill 12-1281 allowed the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (Department) to accept proposals for an innovative payment reform pilot that demonstrates new ways of paying for improved client outcomes while reducing costs in the Accountable Care Collaborative (ACC) program. The Department solicited proposals from the seven ACC Regional Care Collaborative Organizations (RCCOs) in the state.
On July 1, 2013, the Department announced that it selected a Medicaid payment reform proposal submitted by Rocky Mountain Health Plans (RMHP). It was selected from ten proposals submitted to the Department by the RCCOs.
The two-year pilot program will begin on or before July 1, 2014, and will focus on payment reform for services delivered to clients in seven counties in Colorado: Delta, Garfield, Gunnison, Mesa, Montrose, Pitkin, and Rio Blanco. The pilot program is a global budget, global payment, reporting and gain-sharing model that integrates behavioral and health services for a target population of approximately 11,000 Coloradans.
