Over half of the health care payments (57%) paid to doctors and hospitals in Colorado by the commercial sector in 2016 contain incentives to improve quality of care patients receive. Surpassing national trends, 54% percent of payments in Colorado’s Medicaid market were tied to value in 2016. These are among the findings of The Colorado Scorecards on Payment Reform released by Catalyst for Payment Reform (CPR) and the Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC).
Both The Colorado Scorecard on Commercial Payment Reform and The Colorado Scorecard on Medicaid Payment Reform aggregate data from calendar year 2016. CPR obtained the data for the commercial scorecard through an online survey of health plans, with four commercial health plans responding, who together cover approximately 78% of the commercially-insured lives in Colorado. CPR obtained data directly from HCPF for the Medicaid Scorecard.
