What's New for the Care-Based Incentive Program
What's New for CBI 2023
New Programmatic Measures:
- Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) Screening in Children and Adolescents: This measure was moved from exploratory to a programmatic measure. This measure is based on the percentage of members 1 – 20 years of age who are screened for ACEs annually.
- Health Equity: This measure was moved from exploratory to a programmatic measure category and will continue to assess race/ethnicity disparities in health plan performance using the child and adolescent well-care visits. The methodology has changed to close the gap to the 50th or 75th percentile by 50% based on the baseline rates for the various race/ethnicities from Q4 2022.
New Fee-For-Service (FFS) Measures:
- Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Training and Attestation: The plan shall pay providers, including mid-level providers and second- and third-year residents, for completing the ACEs Aware training and attestation. Providers will need to complete the ACEs Aware training and attestation to receive Prop 56 payment and to qualify for the new ACEs FFS measure.
