EQIP

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

  • Help the State meet the financial targets of Total Cost of Care (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 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center (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.
  • Episode of Care Definitions
    The Episodes of Care Definition Summary Descriptions are designed to facilitate understanding of the scope and boundaries of a specific episode.
  • *New Prometheus Grouper
    The code set being used by EQIP.  Reach out to MedChi, CRISP, or the HSCRC to learn more or get more details.  Other value based programs or bundles can be used, but these codes are easier to add to the program.
