The Rural Health Value team is pleased to share a policy paper entitled Advancing Value-Based Payment Policies Relevant to Rural Areas – Continued Challenges and New Opportunities.
Building on RHV’s “How to Design Value-Based Care Models for Rural Participant Success: A Summit Findings Report,” this paper suggests potential Innovation Center and CMS policy opportunities to ensure that all fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries will be in a care relationship with accountability for quality and total cost of care by 2030, and to ensure the inclusion of rural health care providers in CMS models, programs, and quality improvement initiatives.
