States Pursuing Payment, Delivery System Innovations

The nation’s state Medicaid programs are collectively developing and implementing a variety of changes in their payment and delivery systems – changes designed to improve care and make it more economical.

These innovations can generally be divided into five types:  payment adjustment policies, managed fee-for-service, bundled payments, managed care initiatives, and health homes.

The nation’s private urban safety-net hospitals, because they care for so many Medicaid patients, are likely to be affected by such changes more than the typical acute-care hospital.
