How much and what types of payment reform are happening in New Jersey? Is payment reform delivering on its promise of improving the quality and affordability of health care? As part of the Scorecard on Payment Reform 2.0 initiative, the New Jersey Scorecards on Commercial and Medicaid Payment Reform bring together aggregate data from commercial and Medicaid health plans along with New Jersey’s performance on leading indicators of payment reforms’ impact at a macro-level.
Funded through a joint grant by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, the Commercial Scorecard is based on an independent review of data from commercial health plans that collectively insured 4.6 million New Jerseyans (approximately 72% of the commercially-insured lives) in 2016, the year on which the Commercial Scorecard bases its findings. The Medicaid Scorecard is based on an independent review of data from Managed Care Organizations that collectively insured 1.6 million New Jerseyans (approximately 92% of the Medicaid-insured lives) in 2016, the year on which the Scorecard bases its findings.
The New Jersey Scorecards, released in conjunction with the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute as local sponsor of the effort, provide baseline information for New Jersey health care stakeholders to utilize in their work towards a more efficient and value-oriented health care system.
