Value-Based Payments

Value-based payment alters provider reimbursement incentives by rewarding quality over quantity. When it comes to maternity care, payment reform must support both improved quality and reduced costs.

PBGH is collaborating with payers and multi-stakeholder groups to accelerate the development of episodic or bundled, value-based payments that control costs and encourage high-value care throughout pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.
