Ohio Submits Payment Innovation Plan
In February 2013, Ohio received a federal State Innovation Model (SIM) grant to design new health care payment models that financially reward better care instead of more care. Over the past six months, the Governor's Office of Health Transformation hosted 100+ health experts in 50+ design meetings. This work is summarized in Ohio's State Health Care Innovation Plan, which OHT submitted to the federal government today as the final step in the design process and the first step toward testing new payment models.
