ACC Payment Reform Initiative Update

The Accountable Care Collaborative (ACC) payment reform initiative bill passed during the 2012 legislative session allows the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) to accept proposals for innovative payment reforms that will demonstrate new ways of paying for improved client health outcomes for Medicaid clients while reducing costs.

The Department is developing a formal process for requesting, receiving, evaluating and selecting proposals. The first step will be an invitation for abstracts. All abstracts must be submitted through the Accountable Care Collaborative’s Regional Care Collaborative Organizations (RCCOs) and their partners. Abstracts will assist the Department in developing the proposal evaluation criteria. Please click here to find a fact sheet, FAQ document and the invitation for abstracts link. There will be an opportunity for stakeholder input during the proposal criteria development phase of the process.
