Three states – Arkansas, Tennessee, and Ohio – have implemented bundled payments for the Medicaid population to better control episode cost and quality, while aligning incentives across commercial payers to promote efficiency for participating providers. Our environmental scan of active state bundled payment models identified common episode design parameters including benchmark methodology, episode initiators, and evaluation standards across the states that have implemented bundled payments. However, each state took a unique approach to engaging providers and payers in the transformation. This webinar provided an in-depth case study of the experience in Arkansas, including lessons learned from the process of designing a multi-payer bundled payment program, and integration with other value-based payment models, the payer perspective on participating in the design of bundled payment models in Ohio.
