Learn the different care delivery systems and alternative payment methods that can support community health worker (CHW) services, including approaches used by the Massachusetts Medicaid program, MassHealth. The benefits of reform include improved health outcomes for patients by utilizing CHWs, and more financial flexibility for accountable care organizations through new funding mechanisms. These methods give providers and payers the flexibility to develop new approaches on their own in order to improve health outcomes.
