Value Based Purchasing (VBP)

It is always the goal of Beacon to assist our members in achieving the best possible chance at recovery. One of the ways we do this is by collaborating with providers and appropriately rewarding them for delivering high quality and cost efficient care to Beacon members. Over the last several years, Pennsylvania’s Department of Human Services (DHS) has prompted Behavioral Health Managed Care Organizations (BH-MCOs) to move away from traditional fee-for-service reimbursement models that reward providers for quantity of services over quality of care and enter into value based payment (VBP) arrangements that will improve patient outcomes and lower the cost of care. Beacon has continued to support its network providers with this transition while implementing the state’s VBP initiatives. As a provider, you may already participate in a VBP program Beacon offers or will have the opportunity to join one in the future. To ensure that all providers participating in a VBP model have the necessary tools to succeed in these programs, Beacon delivers education, data and the support of dedicated staff, and also enables providers to share best practices.
