Accountable Care Collaborative Payment Reform Initiative (HB12-1281)

House Bill 12-1281 directed the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (the Department) to accept proposals for an innovative payment reform pilot that demonstrates new ways of paying for improved client outcomes while reducing costs.  The Department solicited proposals from its seven contracted Regional Care Collaborative Organizations (RCCOs). A total of ten proposals were received.

In July 2013, the Department announced that it selected a Medicaid payment reform proposal submitted by Rocky Mountain Health Plans (RMHP). 

The two-year pilot program will begin on or before July 1, 2014. It will focus on payment reform for services delivered to clients in six counties: 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 clients.
