In recent years, the health care system has accelerated experimentation into new payment and delivery models that reward care coordination, integration, and value. However, observers and market participants have expressed concerns that long-standing anti-fraud rules in Medicare and Medicaid prevent innovation and hold back potentially promising new arrangements. In 2018, the Trump administration sought stakeholder feedback on how the regulations implementing those laws might be modified to promote value-based, coordinated, integrated care delivery while protecting taxpayers and beneficiaries from fraud.
On January 30, the USC-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy will host Eric Hargan, the deputy secretary of health and human services, for a discussion about this effort. Following his presentation, experts in health care payment and delivery system reform will discuss the issue and the path forward.
