Episode Payment: Private Innovation and Opportunities for Medicare - Special Meeting on Episode Payment Features with CMMI Chief Rick Gilfillan

The Health Industry Forum hosted this meeting to contribute to the efforts of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to develop new episode payment pilot programs. Innovation Center Chief Rick Gilfillan and his Care Models team began the meeting by establishing broad goals for the new pilot programs. Four different panels then described private sector episode payment initiatives in various stages of implementation. The goal of these panels was identifying real-life lessons about design and implementation that could help guide future program development. The group then synthesized recommendations for the Innovation Center to consider in its efforts to design episode payment programs that are feasible, sustainable, and scalable.
