AHCA Launches New Payment Reform Initiative Webpages

American Health Care Association (AHCA) members now have access to the latest information about the ongoing AHCA Payment Reform Initiative (PRI). Log onto the AHCA website to view the new PRI webpages, which include an overview of the initiative, details on the Medicare Post-Acute Care SNF Payment concept, background on value-based components and therapy regulatory relief, and additional resources.

In June 2014, the Chair of the AHCA Board of Governors appointed a Payment Reform Task Force. The goal of the task force was to develop a viable, proactive and comprehensive vision for payment reform suitable for advocacy with Congress, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Congressional Medicare and Medicaid advisory commissions. Over the course of the summer and early fall 2014, the Task Force members submitted over a dozen reform concept papers. The concepts then were scored and prioritized by the member-driven Task Force.

Visit the AHCA Payment Reform Initiative homepage to learn more. If you have questions or comments on the still-under-development-effort, please contact Mike Cheek at mcheek@ahca.org.
