Ohio takes next steps in health care payment innovation


This week, Ohio applied for a federal State Innovation Model (SIM) grant to test innovative payment and service delivery models for Medicaid, state employee, and commercial health plan populations. Over the past 18 months, OHT has been working with public and private sector health care purchasers, plans, providers, and consumers to set priorities for payment innovation in Ohio. The result is a bold plan to reset the basic rules of health care competition so the incentive is to keep people as healthy as possible, pay for what works to improve and maintain health, and shift to value-based payments that reward patient-centered care coordination and better health outcomes.
