Accountable Care in Medicaid

The Medicaid program is experiencing a shift toward new models that promote accountability for the cost and quality of care delivered to patients and focus on better, more efficient coordination of care. Several delivery system reform initiatives in Medicaid, including, for example, medical homes and accountable care organizations, focus on accountable care and include elements such as implementing value-based payment structures, measuring quality improvement, and collecting and analyzing data.  We will review selected accountable care models in Medicaid for compliance with relevant State and Federal requirements.
