14 Components of Reform Goals – to incentivize towards high quality, low cost care – To reduce the overall spend of care Major Components Reward Better performing providers – Value Based Purchasing Reducing payment for poor outcomes – Readmissions, hospital acquired conditions, infections, serious preventable adverse events Encourage collaboration across the continuum – Bundling of payments

15 Quality Based Payment Reforms

16 Readmissions – Federal: PPACA imposes financial penalties on hospitals with high readmission rates. Beginning October 2012, acute care hospitals with higher than expected 30 day risk adjusted readmission rates will receive reduced payments for every discharge. The reduced payment is the lesser of 1% or a hospital specific readmission adjusted factor. [2% in Oct 2013; 3% in Oct 2014]. CAHs exempt. In the first two years, the payment policy will apply to heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia. Additional conditions will be added in future years. Projected savings: $7.1 billion/10 years 16

17 Quality Based Payment Reforms Hospital Acquired Conditions (HACs) – Federal: PPACA imposes financial penalties on hospitals with high HAC rate. Beginning October 2014, hospitals with HAC rate in bottom quartile of national average (i.e. high rate) will suffer a 1% payment reduction for all Medicare inpatient DRGs. Projected savings: $1.5 billion/10 years – Other HAC provision Requires reporting of hospital specific information on HACs to the public via Hospital Compare Public reporting was scheduled for September 23, 2010 but has been indefinitely delayed due to a discrepancy in the calculation of HAC rates by CMS. 17
