Maternity Episode of Care

The Washington State Health Care Authority, hereafter called "HCA," is initiating this Request for Proposal (RFP) to solicit proposals from firms interested in participating on a project to develop, scope and refine a Maternity Episode of Care, a value-based payment approach in which care services are defined and required, reporting and accountability for high value outcomes are included and payment is redesigned in a single, fixed rate. All of this is over a defined period of time from initiation of prenatal care through a specified postpartum timeframe. In partnership with HCA, the episode will be completed and will move to implementation. HCA’s plan for this episode of care is for it to be implemented first in Medicaid, both in fee-for-service and Managed Care, followed by our commercial insurance side, for our public employees and school employees statewide.
