  1. Innovation and Risk:Transitioning Through Payment Reform Activities

    Indiana Rural Health Association 17th Annual Rural Health Conference June 10 – 11, 2014
  2. Discussion Overview Payment Reform: A Market in Transition Innovation Payment Models Regulatory Environment & Other Market Influences
  3. Payment Reform: A Market in Transition

  4. True Reform Will Require Disruptive Innovation* Simplifying Technology Low Cost Business Models Value Network Regulations & Standards That Facilitate Change * Source: “The Innovator’s Prescription” by Clayton M. Christensen
  5. Supreme Court Examines Constitutionality U.S. Supreme Court Ruling: June 28, 2012
  6. The Foundation: Value-Based Payment Value Based Payment: “a reform initiative whereby health care providers will receive payment for service based on their performance or the potential outcomes of the service” Tying payment to performance is perhaps the most significant aspect of health care reform. The de facto definition of “value” in health care reform is the intersection of lower cost and improved quality. Providers who can lower costs and deliver quality will be measured as “value-based providers” Lower Cost Value Improved Quality
  7. Innovation Payment Models

  21. CMS Primary Care Transformation Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative Multi-payer initiative fostering collaboration between public and private health care payers. 497 primary care practices covering 7 states Includes 2,347 providers serving an estimated 315,000 Medicare Beneficiaries Independence at Home Demonstration Tests the effectiveness of delivering comprehensive primary care services to Medicare beneficiaries with multiple chronic conditions at home. Providers who succeed in reducing costs and meeting designated quality measures will receive an incentive payment. Participants announced in April 2012 and include 15 different practices in 12 different states Source: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI)
  22. CMS Primary Care Transformation Multi-Payer Advanced Primary Care Practice CMS participating in 8 states with multi-payer reform initiatives already being conducted in states. Demonstration focuses in on if advanced primary care practice will reduce unjustified utilization and expenditures, improve safety, effectiveness and timeliness and efficiency of health care services. Monthly care management fee is paid to cover care coordination, improved access, patient education, and other services to support chronically ill patients. FQHC Advanced Primary Care Practice A three-year demonstration program designed to evaluate the effect of advanced primary care practice model (commonly referred to PCMH) in improving care, promoting health, and reducing cost of care to Medicare beneficiaries served by FQHCs. 493 participating FQHCs will be paid a monthly care management fee of $6.00 (paid quarterly) per eligible beneficiary attributed to their practice. Fee is in addition to the usual all-inclusive payment rate currently received. Source: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI)

  27. Regulatory Environment &Other Market Influences

  28. Influencers of Medicare Reimbursement Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (PPACA) March 2010 American Taxpayer Relief Act January 2013 MedPAC & OIG 2013 Reports New formula for DSH payments. Established requirements for pay-for-performance initiatives “Payment equalization across sites of service” Elimination of CAH designation for 849 of 1,329 CAHs President Obama’s September 2011 budget CAH swingbed reimbursement vs. skilled nursing facilities Rural Health Clinic (RHC) designation and rules compliance Grants CMS authority to recoup “excess payments”in “exchange” for temporary SGR patch Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 Extended provisions of ATRA, including SGR, through 3/31/14 Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 Extends provisions of ATRA for 1 year CMS Annual Updates ACA implementation Value-Based-Payment Readmissions DSH Implementation
  29. MedPAC Pushing EqualizationPayment Pressures: “Good Ole Days” At Risk “Last year we made a recommendation to equalize payment rates for office visits provided in hospital outpatient departments and physician offices. We will continue to analyze opportunities for applying this principle to other services and sectors, such as sectors that provide post-acute care.” MedPAC 2013 Report to Congress “Medicare often pays different amounts for similar services across settings. Basing the payment rate on the rate in the most efficient clinically appropriate setting would save money for Medicare… We extend that principle to specific services that meet the Commission’s criteria….” MedPAC 2014 Report to Congress
  30. MedPAC Payment Equalization Recommendations Identified 5 criteria for services that are “good candidates” Frequently (> 50%) performed in physicians office Minimal packaging differences across payment systems Infrequently provided in ED Severity no greater in HOPD then freestanding offices Do not have a 90-day global surgical code Broke 450 APCs into two groups based on service category: Group 1: 66 APCs Characteristics: No emergency standby required; no extra costs associated with complexity; no additional overhead Group 2: 42 APCs Characteristics: Met 4 of the 5 above characteristics Okay to exceed PFS rate, but only equal to cost of additional packaging Estimated reductions of $1.1B LTCH Non-Chronic Critical Payment Rate Reduced from ~ $40,000/ case to ~ $12,000/case (similar to IP PPS) Shift differential, ~ $2B, to IP PPS to increase outlier reimbursement for CCI patients

  33. Growth in Spending Will Dictate Risk:Factors Influencing Spending Growth* Source: MedPAC Report to Congress, March 2014
  34. Will Access to Coverage Kick-Start Spending Growth? Health care spending rose at fastest rate in 10 years in 4Q of 2013 at 5.6% ** Hospital revenue grew by $8 billion, despite 1% decrease in IP days Reasons behind the increase: Trend of shifting > out of pocket to insured leveling off Upward pressures on costs, such as high-tech treatments, are remerging Since 2011 unemployment has dropped from 8.5% to 6.7%, adding 2.6 million jobs “The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services expects health spending to rise 6.1% this year……as 11 million people gain health insurance.”** ** Source: USA Today “Health care spending growth hits 10-year high”
  35. Emerging Risk in Commercial Contracting Background Insurer is implementing a new payment system and provided estimated impact of conversion. Estimated impact of the change was a reduction of net revenues of about $831,000 (14%) However, as claims are being processed the impact is greater than initially estimated Application of LCC rule further reduces net revenues by $954,000 (-16%) Revised Estimated Impact Baseline Conversion Impact ($831,000) Additional Reduction Due to Application of Claim Level LCC ($954,000) TOTAL NET REVENUE IMPACT OF NEW CONTRACT ($1,785,000) Overall % Reduction in Payor Revenue -30%
  36. Emerging Risk in Commercial Contracting (cont’d) Overall Payment Rate (2012 Pricing) What it used to be under the old contract Initial estimate based on analysis of new contract Actual rate from paying at lower of allowable or charges at a claim level (LCC)

Overview 38
  39. 2014 Market Transitions to Monitor Transitioning commercial contracting More “stiff arming” especially for smaller providers Exchange related impacts Glitch continuation? Reimbursement implications “Surprise” narrow networks ? Increased demand for medical services Reprieves from mandates – how long will they last? Consumer impact – choice & out-of-pocket costs Escalation in ruthless competition Formation of narrow networks impacting market share On-going provider operational challenges Revenue cycle issues Profitability continues to be squeezed Charge capture issues
  40. Parting Comments Health care payment system is being driven to “value based” payments The transition in large part is market driven Many of the initiatives take aim at improving management, access, and quality of care provided to patients with chronic conditions Short-term outcomes show promise, but it will be years before we understand the true benefit of this transition Outside of new innovation models, some of payment reform activity is not all that innovative Transition market is creating unique competition challenges
