NYSDOH Releases Schedule of Regional Value Based Payment 'Bootcamps'

NYAPRS Note: The NYS Department of Health is offering a series of regional ‘bootcamp’ sessions designed “to give an in-depth look at Value Based Contracting in New York State Medicaid. They will provide an overview of VBP arrangements, focusing on what it means to be a VBP contractor and how to make a VBP contract successful.”

About VBP Bootcamps

Description:The Value Based Payment (VBP) Regional Bootcamp learning series will be provided by the Department of Health to the plan and provider communities within the State to deliver necessary information about VBP and ensure a successful transition to its implementation. The series will be completed over the course of three all-day sessions in every region, approximately one per month. The State has been divided into five regions where each session will occur (please see map below).

Target Audience:These sessions will be directed towards all parties that will be implementing Medicaid payment reform. However, the content addressed will be most relevant to those who have little to no experience in executing value-based contracts.

Objectives:These Bootcamp sessions will aim to give an in-depth look at Value Based Contracting in New York State Medicaid. They will provide an overview of VBP arrangements, focusing on what it means to be a VBP contractor and how to make a VBP contract successful. The sessions will highlight the data and analytical capabilities that the State will make available, how Medicaid providers can move responsibly into accepting downside risk, what health plans are expected to do, and what the financial incentives in the VBP world will look like for both payers and providers. The Bootcamp sessions will also aim to facilitate networking between plans and providers.
