Value-Based Payment Models

Health care has made a monumental shift toward value-based payment (VBP) and reimbursement (VBR) over the last two decades. But what this shift looks like varies by payer-provider agreement. It can result in contract differences based on populations covered, services provided, reimbursement rates, levels of risk sharing, and methods of performance measurement. Behavioral health providers continue to trail their primary care peers in participation in VBP-VBR. However, public and payer policies aimed at integration and care coordination for high-need consumers require behavioral health payers and providers to get onboard with VBP-VBR initiatives in order to objectively demonstrate quality of care and patient satisfaction while reducing overall health care costs.

Need more information to help you understand behavioral health in the era of value-based payment and reimbursement? Whether you’re interested in VBR models, their clinical implications, or the strategic, sustainability, and infrastructure challenges they present for payers and providers alike, PsychU has your back. Check out this month’s Spotlight, where you’ll find the latest VBP-VBR insights, news, and market trends.
