An ad hoc committee will plan and host a 1-day public workshop that will examine how various financing and payment approaches can help support delivery of high-quality care for serious illness. The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include
- Integrated financing models such as Medicare Advantage programs, Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, and risk-based payment approaches such as accountable care organizations and bundled payments.
- Programs such as the Medicare hospice benefit, Medicare Home Health Care, Medicaid Home Health Care, and financing and payment methods for the dual-eligible population.
- Incorporation of performance metrics in payment models, such as pay-for-performance and performance incentives.
- Potential policy steps to address key gaps, challenges, and opportunities related to financing and payment models to support high-quality care for serious illness.
The planning committee will develop the agenda for the workshop, select speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. Proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
