State Experiences Designing and Implementing Medicaid Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Pools

Bookmark and Share

Since 2010, eight states have negotiated with the federal government to implement Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) or “DSRIP-like” programs. These programs are a component of Section 1115 demonstrations that incentivizes system transformation and quality improvements in hospitals and other providers serving high volumes of low-income patients. DSRIPs aim to meet strategic goals, based on the Triple Aim principles of better care, improved health, and lower costs by incentivizing reforms that transition away from episodic treatment of disease toward prevention and management of health and wellness among patient populations. This report provides an in-depth cross-state analysis of current DSRIP and DSRIP-like programs. It describes implementation experiences from the federal, state, and provider perspectives.
