Implementation of Value-Based Payment Models to Begin With Employee Group Plans, Study Says

Seventy-seven percent of quality management leaders and chief medical officers report that the most popular target for implementation of value-based payment models is employee group plans, according to "Health Plan Readiness to Operationalize Value-Based Payment Models," a research study sponsored by Availity, a health information network connecting providers and payors.

The study was administered by independent research firm, Porter Research, in 2012. Researchers interviewed qualified participants of 39 health plans who were knowledgeable about their organizations' value-based payment model plans and programs. Target participants included quality management leaders, medical directors, and chief medical officers.

Other health plans that are targets for implementation of value-based payment models, according to the study, are:

•    Medicare plans — 54 percent
•    Medicaid plans — 46 percent
•    Individual plans — 44 percent
•    Other — 5 percent
