The Alliance for Recovery-Centered Addiction Health Services, of which the AHA is a member, today announced an alternative payment model designed to provide patients a long-term, comprehensive and integrated pathway to addiction treatment and recovery. The Addiction Recovery Medical Home model – which incorporates bundled payments, quality targets and shared-savings – promotes improved integration of treatment and recovery resources. It sets forth corresponding financial incentives that benefit all stakeholders when the patient is well managed by a multi-disciplinary care team, the Alliance said. AHA and its hospital and health system members worked closely with the Alliance to design the model. “Designing a new payment and care delivery model is no small task and required a lot of work and collaboration,” said Joanna Hiatt Kim, AHA vice president of payment policy, at an event in Washington, D.C. today announcing the model. “We are thrilled that it is now public so that the most important work – the work to help our patients and our communities – can begin.” The Alliance intends to pilot the ARMH model in at least two markets beginning in 2019.
