Session #1: Introduction to Value-Based Payments

Vikki Wachino, former Director of Medicaid and CHIP Services at CMS, will decode value-based payments, alternate payment models, pay for performance, and what these mean for IDD service providers. She will address why the healthcare industry is shifting toward value-based payments; how value-based payments are anticipated to impact I/DD services; and what providers need to think about as the VBP model is applied to I/DD services and supports.  If you missed her at the 2019 annual conference, this is your chance to hear how states and payers are approaching I/DD payments.

A recording will be made available for registrants.
