Value-based Purchasing for Managed Care Procurements: A Toolkit for State Medicaid Agencies
Mary Beth Dyer and Beth Waldman, Bailit Health
Value-based Purchasing for Managed Care Procurement: A Toolkit for State Medicaid Agencies is designed to assist states interested in implementing value-based purchasing (VBP) approaches with their Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs). Using a VBP approach can mean significant and ongoing changes for a state Medicaid agency and its MCOs. The Toolkit is designed to guide Medicaid agencies through key action steps and considerations in four phases of the managed care procurement cycle – 1) strategic procurement planning, 2) solicitation development, 3) bidder selection, and 4) contract management.
If you are interested in an overview of the Toolkit and its contents, we have a summary, Purchasing Value in Medicaid Managed Care, that provides a road map for the Toolkit and is an introduction for those interested in learning more about value-based purchasing for managed care.
