HB17-1353 - Implement Medicaid Delivery & Payment Initiatives

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning implementing medicaid initiatives that create higher value in the medicaid program leading to better health outcomes for medicaid clients, and, in connection therewith, continuing the implementation of the accountable care collaborative and authorizing performance-based provider payments.

Joint Budget Committee. The bill authorizes the department of heath care policy and financing (department) to continue its implementation of the medicaid care delivery system, referred to as the accountable care collaborative (ACC). The bill defines the goals of the ACC and the department's implementation of the ACC, including, in part, establishing primary care medical homes for medicaid clients, providing regional coordination and accountability, and integrating physical and behavioral health care delivery. The medical services board is required to promulgate rules implementing the ACC.

The bill requires the department to submit an annual report concerning the implementation of the ACC to the joint budget committee and to the health care committees of the house of representatives and of the senate that oversee the medicaid program. Among other information listed in the bill, the report must include information on the number of medicaid clients participating in the ACC, performance results, and fiscal impacts of the ACC.

The bill authorizes the department of health care policy and financing (department) to implement performance-based payments for medicaid providers. Prior to implementing performance-based payments, the department shall report to the joint budget committee concerning the performance-based payments, including whether the payments require a budget request, the amount of the payments compared to total reimbursements for the affected service, and a description of the stakeholder process and the department's response to stakeholder feedback. After implementation of performance-based payments, the department shall report to the joint budget committee and the health care committees of the house of representatives and the senate that oversee the medicaid program concerning the design of the performance-based payments, the stakeholder engagement process with respect to the payments, and other information regarding the implementation of the performance-based payments described in the bill.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
