The introduction of alternative payment models (APMs) fundamentally changes the relationship between states, managed care organizations (MCOs), and providers. Understanding the challenges that MCOs and providers face in the implementation of APMs can help a state develop a framework and set of tools that will help MCOs and providers adapt to a value-based care environment.

This issue brief explores common and consistent challenges observed with the implementation and successful adoption of APMs across multiple state programs, as well as simple steps states can take to improve uptake of APMs for maternity populations.
