HCA Seeking Provider Participation

The ‘Paying for Value’ Survey is Now Online

The Health Care Authority (HCA) is seeking provider participation in an annual paying for value survey. The survey will help track progress toward the statewide goal of paying for value-based care, rather than paying for volume of care. In a value-based system, payments are based on the health outcomes people experience, rather than paying for each medical transaction.

Because provider success is at the heart of value-based care, provider input is essential. Providers who participate in this survey will provide valuable insight into the challenges they face when considering adopting new payment arrangements. It will also help HCA support providers and the health and wellness community as a whole.

HCA invites a variety of providers across Washington State to participate. This includes hospitals, health systems, clinics, tribal health care, and behavioral health care, and others.

The survey is open until 5:00 pm on Friday, August 30. It is designed to be filled out by an administrative leader, with only one response per organization.

HCA is asking managed care organizations and commercial plans to participate in a similar survey.
