Total Cost of Care Workgroup Information

The success of the All-Payer Model and the Care Redesign programs will be measured, in part, by reductions in potentially avoidable utilization, readmissions, and ultimately reduced costs due to higher quality healthcare and improvements in patient health. Determining the technical aspects of TCOC for the Care Redesign programs and the State as a whole will be crucial to meeting the State’s obligations under the All-Payer Model.

The initial charge of the TCOC workgroup is to provide feedback to HSCRC on the development of specific methodologies and calculations while considering implications to avoid cost-shifting for:
  1. Hospital-level Medicare TCOC guardrails for the Amendment Care Redesign Programs
  2. The Hospital-level Incentive Pool for the Complex and Chronic Care Improvement Program (CCIP)
  3. Value-based payment modifiers based on Medicare TCOC
  4. 4. The development of a Geographic Population Model (Medicare and potentially others)
