ACC Payment Reform Initiative (HB12-1281)
The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (Department) is getting ready to begin implementation of payment reform legislation passed last session. This legislation, HB1281, allows the Department to accept proposals for innovative payment reforms that will demonstrate new ways of paying for improved client outcomes while reducing costs.
The Department is developing a formal process for requesting, receiving, evaluating and selecting proposals. The first step will be an invitation for abstracts (see below). All abstracts must be submitted through the Accountable Care Collaborative's Regional Care Collaborative Organizations (RCCOs). Rather than meet with individual Department staff, all partners should work directly with their RCCO on the abstract and subsequent payment reform proposals.
There will be an opportunity for stakeholder input during the proposal criteria development phase of the process; this will allow all voices to be at the table in a fair and open way.
