Sentara Health Plans, Virginia Children's Care Network strike value-based partnership

Sentara Health Plans and Virginia Children's Care Network are launching a value-based partnership to improve outcomes and lower costs for children enrolled in Medicaid. 

Virginia Children's Care Network will receive funding from Sentara to support population health efforts, according to a July 2 news release from the insurer. The network will be eligible for bonus payments if it meets certain quality metrics. 

The value-based arrangement will align quality goals with those established by Virginia's Medicaid program, according to the release. 

Virginia Children's Care Network comprises community physicians supported by Children's Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University. 

Sentara Health Plans is part of Hampton Roads, Va.-based Sentara Health. The plan has nearly 1 million members in Virginia and Florida across Medicaid and individual plans.
