EQIP

EQIP is an episode-based payment program for non-hospital providers designed to: 

  • Help the State meet the financial targets of TCOC Model
  • Include more providers in a value-based payment framework (that is, to have responsibility and share in rewards for reducing Medicare TCOC spending)
  • Encourage multi-payer alignment in a value-based payment framework
  • Include more episodes than in CMMI models
  • Broaden access to Medicare’s 5% Advanced APM (AAPM) MACRA opportunity

EQIP will provide the State with input on:

  • Episodes to include (prioritization), and
  • Episode design, recognizing there are annual opportunities for updates and participation.

The EQIP subgroup's first meeting was an open forum on Friday morning, 11/22/2019, 8 a.m., the subgroup is led by Gene Ransom.
