Resource Summary: To get control of the high cost of health care, payers such as Medicare, Medicaid, and health insurance companies are changing how they pay for care. They want to see more value for their money. As payers change how they pay for what they value, health care providers, including health centers, must change how they deliver care so it is more valuable without costing more. This document is intended to help health center board members understand changes to the health center payment and care model in order to meet their fiduciary responsibilities of providing oversight and acting for the good of the health center and protecting the health center's assets. This resource addresses: Why Payment Reform? What Does Payment Reform Mean for Health Centers? What is the Board’s Role in Supporting the Health Center in Payment Reform?
