Title: Anticipating the Rural Impact of Medicare Value-Based Purchasing
Abstract: This policy brief discusses value-based purchasing (VBP), a collection of new Medicare payment programs designed to improve clinical quality and patient experience while reducing cost inflation. It discusses the forces leading to the design and implementation of VBP programs; describes programs for prospective payment hospitals, critical access hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, and physician office practices; and describes the legislative statute, regulations or demonstration project details, rural inclusion, and preliminary results of Medicare VBP programs. The policy brief also presents a discussion and implications for rural providers and includes a table and references.
