Value Based Model Changes are ‘Hugely Disruptive’

Posted Sunday, October 31, 2021

The value-based insurance design (VBID) demonstration, also known as the Medicare Advantage (MA) is about to enter its second year. Hospices and palliative care providers are asking questions about the delivery, setting and the outlook for their industries.

Misaligned payment is at the core of issues providers face, according to Susan Ponder-Stansel, president and CEO of Florida-based Alivia Care.

“We’ve made all these investments and physical plants in capacity business models, and when you start to make some of those changes, it’s hugely disruptive,” said Ponder-Stansel at the Hospice News Elevate conference. “Instead of running off and looking for new models of care, I would recommend that we make the change incrementally by giving consumers a real option and resourcing them well, so that capacity is there. Maybe that will create a tipping point where people have options, versus trying to butt heads right away and say you have to change your business model and align it with what people want.”
