In its continued efforts to base Medicare payments on quality over quantity, this morning HHS made public its goal to have 30% of Medicare payments in alternative payment models—including, for example, accountable care organizations, medical homes, and bundled payment models—by the end of 2016 and 50% of Medicare payments in such models by the end of 2018. Overall, HHS seeks to have 85% of Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) payments in value-based purchasing categories, including quality-linked FFS payment models and alternative payment models, by 2016 and 90% of Medicare FFS payments in such categories by 2018. A CMS fact sheet describing HHS’s goals is available here, and two additional facts sheets on HHS’s efforts to improve the health care delivery system are available here and here.
