Value-Based Payments in Managed Long Term Services and Supports for Community-Based Organizations at RCPA Annual Conference
Fady Sahhar will discuss Value-Based Payments in Managed Long Term Services and Supports, and their function in helping to make or keep older Americans and people with disabilities independent and living safely in their communities, at the 2018 RCPA Conference.
Dr. Sahhar will discuss Value-Based Payments in Managed Long Term Services and Supports, and their function in helping to make or keep older Americans and people with disabilities independent and living safely in their communities.
“Those of us who cut our teeth on advocacy for people with disabilities are especially passionate that Community Based Organizations (CBO’s) can continue to deliver these services with minimal disruptions, so we’re keeping a close eye on the MLTSS conversion to managed care in Pennsylvania and other states,” Dr. Sahhar says. “This conference is an excellent venue for organizations at all stages of the transition to collaborate and share knowledge, especially from those of us who’ve been involved in this rollout. We may find different ways to get there but our goal is essentially the same: to provide services with the right balance of consumer control, quality and provider accountability.”
Dr. Sahhar will be discussing VBP and MLTSS in presentations with colleagues from Transitional Paths to Independent Living, bringing up-to-date insights from their experience with Pennsylvania’s Community Health Choices rollout to the conversation.
“Hopefully, we can demystify the process,” Dr. Sahhar says, “and even get ahead of the curve. Looking farther ahead, we’ve developed a program that takes what we’ve learned from the CHC rollout so far and successes in other regions, to help organizations serving Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities populations prepare for the new care model to come – and it is coming.”
