With the enactment of the 2018-2019 budget, home care agencies are facing new challenges with the shift from a fee-for-ervice payment model to a value-based payment model, as well as new restrictions that limit provider participation in managed care arrangements.  With the need for building relationships among licensed agencies becoming more important, many are interested in understanding and forming IPAs (Independent Practice Associations) to stay competitive while remaining autonomous.  Topics and strategies for discussion include:


  • Defining an IPA
  • The purpose for creating an IPA
  • Identifying the right partners
  • Key points of the relationship
  • Services provided under an IPA
  • Key financial considerations
  • Risk-sharing arrangements
