Value-Based Payment and the Home Care Workforce: What New York Can Teach Other States

Limited evidence exists on how best to incorporate the direct care workforce into value-based payment models in long-term services and supports, especially in the home care sector. To help fill this gap, PHI conducted a case study of value-based payment in home care in New York, interviewing a wide array of New York stakeholders and national experts. Our research shows that value-based payment holds promise for the future of the home care workforce in New York, and other states can learn from New York’s experience of implementing this model.

Key Takeaways

Value-based payment holds promise for the future of the home care workforce in New York—and beyond.
States interested in establishing value-based payment approaches in home care should create a strategic plan with stakeholder input.
Insufficient funding was identified as a major challenge to strengthening the workforce through value-based payment.
