1.3.a: Constrain annual state-purchased health care cost growth to 1% less than national health expenditure trend through 2020

Supplemental Report:

Why is this a priority?

  • Fragmented clinical and financial approaches to care delivery
  • Uncoordinated care and transitions
  • Unengaged members left out of their own health care decisions
  • Variation in delivery system performance (cost & quality) with no ties to clinical or financial accountability and transparency

How are we doing?

  • Both PEB and Medicaid are currently meeting the target of constraining health care cost growth to within 1% of their respective national trends

What are we working on?

  • Fully integrated Managed Care
  • Accountable Care Program (ACP) for public employees
  • Apple Health Managed Care value-based reforms
  • Bundle and Center of Excellence (COE): Total Joint Replacement for public employees beginning 2017
  • Quality Measurement as defined by the WA statewide common measure set
