Trump Care Won’t Change Our Focus

Even amidst talk of repeal, industry experts and KHP firmly believe value-based programs will continue under “Trump Care” (see recent articles in our MACRA Resource Center). For the foreseeable future, KHP and our provider networks will remain focused on our 2017 Priority Metrics – 10 Key Quality Measures that will improve the quality of care you provide and will be the core of your incentive pay programs. As KHP plans to participate in Medicare’s Next Generation ACO and expand our 2-sided risk contracts to over $400 million, the rewards and scrutiny of provider’s documented care becomes significantly bigger.

You can do a self-audit of your current documented scores by logging onto the KHP Care Management Information System. From the self-audit, you’ll have the information necessary to close the gaps on these key measures.
