21 Feb HCTTF Provides Feedback on LAN’s 2030 APM Goals
Posted at 16:01h in Policy Communications
The Health Care Transformation Task Force recently provided feedback to the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) on its 2030 alternate payment model goals and vision. In summary, the Task Force said:
- Extending Target Dates Reflect Market Realities Yet the Push Should Continue. Resetting 2030 as the new target date for a full transition of all Medicare beneficiaries to accountable care reflects current market realities. However, we do not believe setting the 2030 goals for commercial and Medicaid populations at 50% reflects an effective accelerant.
- Payment Reform is Just One Component of an Accountable Care System. We applaud the LAN’s recognition that accountable care is multi-dimensional with payment reform being only one component.
- The Accountable Care Curve Sets Forth a Clear, Desirable Transformation Pathway. The Task Force supports the LAN’s Accountable Care Curve, yet it is important to retain flexibility in the Curve’s implementation strategies so providers and plans can innovate in ways most meaningful for their populations.
- Downside Risk Models for All Medicare Providers May Be Unrealistic. The new LAN goals require 100% of Medicare beneficiaries be in downside risk models by 2030. The Task Force believes it is unlikely that all Medicare providers and plans will be ready for downside risk model by that date.
