Reinventing Medicaid Plan Strives to Increase Quality, Coordinate Care
The Governor believes that reinventing Medicaid is a vital part of Rhode Island's comeback and a centerpiece of our effort to bring more innovation to state government. The recently released Working Group plan outlines a progressive vision to improve the quality and coordination of care in a way that is sustainable and affordable for Rhode Island taxpayers and businesses. This plan sets our state on a path to achieve the predictability all Rhode Islanders deserve.
The group outlined four principles to transform Medicaid to achieve the "triple aim" of improving patient care, improving outcomes and reducing cost. Those principles are:
1. Pay for value, not volume;
2. Coordinate physical, behavioral and long-term health care;
3. Rebalance the delivery system away from high-cost settings;
4. Promote efficiency, transparency and flexibility
