DOH Releases Statewide Value-Based Payment Survey + Health Care Facility Transformation FOA

NYS Department of Health Releases Statewide Value-Based Payment Survey to All Community Based Organizations

The New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) recently released a statewide survey to all Community Based Organizations (CBOs). DOH developed this survey to capture current services CBOs are providing that address Social Determinants of Health (SDH) and gauge CBO integration with the State’s Value Based Payment (VBP) program. According to a recent Medicaid Redesign Team update, “the goal is also for the State to learn about SDH initiatives to share with the community at large, and to use the information provided to build a public inventory of Tier 1, 2, and 3 CBOs that can be used to facilitate VBP contracting.” CBOs will be asked to complete this survey on an annual basis, and the results of the survey will be posted in the VBP Resource Library under Social Determinants of Health and Community Based Organizations.
