Payment Innovation

The Ohio Department of Medicaid continues to engage public and private sector partners in designing a new health care delivery payment system that rewards the value of services – not the volume.

The Ohio Department Medicaid is also working closely with payer partners, including all Medicaid managed care plans (MCPs: Buckeye Health Plan, CareSource, Molina Healthcare, Paramount Health Care, and UnitedHealthcare) and four commercial payers (Aetna, Anthem, Medical Mutual of Ohio, and UnitedHealthCare).

Ohio’s State Innovation Model (SIM) grant proposal centers on testing payment models that increase access to comprehensive primary care and support retrospective episode-based payments for acute medical events.
