The Health Care Authority (HCA) is seeking provider participation in their annual Paying for Value survey. The survey will help track progress toward our statewide goal of paying for health and value, rather than paying for volume of care. In a value-based system, payments are based on the health outcomes people experience, rather than paying for each medical transaction.

Because provider success is at the heart of value-based care, provider input is essential. Providers who participate in this survey will provide valuable insight into the challenges they face when considering adopting new payment arrangements. It will also help HCA support providers and the health and wellness community as a whole.

HCA invites a variety of providers across Washington State to participate. This includes hospitals, health care systems, clinics, tribal health care, behavioral health care, and others. The survey is open until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 31. It is designed to be filled out by an administrative leader, with only one response per organization. HCA is asking managed care organizations and commercial plans to participate in a similar survey. To learn more, visit the HCA VBP website section.
