Wilmington, Del.-based Christiana Care entered a value-based payment agreement with Delaware’s largest Medicaid managed care organization, Highmark Health Options.
Under the partnership, Highmark Health Options will tie payments to Delaware’s largest health system to quality. If healthcare quality and cost-reduction targets are met or exceeded, Christiana Care will receive higher revenue, and vice versa if targets are missed.
The model is a total-cost-of-care arrangement featuring upside and downside risk. As a result, Christiana Care and Highmark Health Options will share accountability for care provided to Medicaid members.
