• June 2019: Vermont’s ACO Model Rewards Providers for Early Childhood Screenings

    This month, we feature a new NASHP fact sheet: Vermont Uses an Accountable Care Organization Model to Promote Developmental Screenings during Well Child Visits. Vermont’s Medicaid Next Generation Model Accountable Care Model (ACO) program is designed to increase developmental screening of young children during their well-child visits in order to identify and treat development delays, improve care, and contain costs. Strategies for improving screening rates in young children can also be found in Vermont’s Improving Population Health Outcomes Prevention Change Packages.
