The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization ACT (MACRA) went into effect three years ago, and though the law offers incentives for adopting value-based models, current growth and momentum are slower than expected, according to a Deloitte blog post.

Gerhardt says 2019 could see more momentum toward value-based models with more concentrated movement toward risk-based payments.
“Several speakers acknowledged that the transition was a marathon, not a sprint,” she writes, referencing the 3rd Annual Value-Based Care Summit in Boston. “But as more non-traditional competitors enter the market, health care stakeholders could pick up their pace.”
