VBP QIP Governance Documents

  • Group 1 MCO Governance Documents were due on Friday, September 16th, 2016.
    • DOH will provide MCOs with feedback on the Governance Documents by Friday, September 30th, 2016.
  • Group 2 MCO Governance Documents are due on Friday, December 9th, 2016.
  • A blank Governance Document Scorecard can be found on the DOH VBP QIP website.
    • The Scorecard outlines the areas DOH reviews, which the MCO´s can use to establish a solid approach for overseeing their programs. This will reinforce the integrity of each program and will foster the parameters that will assist the MCO's paired Facilities with achieving their VBP QIP objectives.

VBP QIP Facility Plans

  • The Facility Plan Template provides guidance to participants on the information each party should consider when putting together their VBP transformation plan.
  • Group 1 Facility Plans were due to DOH on Friday, September 16th, 2016.

VBP QIP Financing Update

  • Finalization of VBP QIP DSRIP Year (DY) 2 Rates - April 2016 Rate Package
    • DOH´s submission of the DY2 Rate Package to CMS & DOB is delayed
    • DOH has worked with DOB to approve a state funded advance for the 3rd Quarter of DY2 (October 2016 - December 2016) to ensure MCOs have VBP QIP funds to pay facilities (while April 2016 rates are reviewed and approved by CMS & DOB).
      • Expect an update on the finalized DY2/Q3 advance shortly.
  • Due to the delay in the submission of the DY2 Rate Package, DOH will not recover funds previously advanced to the MCOs in September 2016 as the State has initially planned.
    • The State will not recover advances sent to MCOs until after the April 2016 rates have been approved.
