Health Reform and Value Based Payments
September 20 @ 9:00 AM - 3:00 PMFree
“Health Reform and the evolution of Value Based Payment (VBP) is changing the way health centers will be paid by third party payors including Medicare and Medicaid. Most VBP models introduce the payment mechanism of rewarding CHCs for managing the total cost of care of their patients. Although FQHC wraparound protections remain, CHCs must become familiar with how VBP arrangements will impact financial operations and begin the processes of both adjusting financial and operational management systems and forecast the impact such payment models will have on the bottom-line and cash flow. This session will begin with an overview of VBP arrangements, the individual payment components, and what can be done today to prepare for the future. Since care coordination, paying for quality and managing the total cost of care are front and center in VBP, the session will also begin to address forecasting revenue under VBP and the “new” costs of participation so that centers can understand the potential return on investment (ROI) and demands on cash flow. “
This training will be presented by Peter R. Epp, CPA , Partner, Community Health Centers – Practice Leader at Cohn Reznick.
CPEs will be given based on attendance.
