Aetna has been moving toward value-based contracting models for more than eight years. Our goal is to have 75% of our medical claims payments under value-based designs by 2020 and we are on target to have 55% in value-based designs in 2018. This includes many value-based payment models including Accountable Care Organizations, Patient Centered Medical Homes, High Performance Networks, Medicare Collaboratives, Capitation and Bundled Payment Arrangements. We are working to ensure that an increasing portion of our payments are in more advanced models (Categories 3 and 4) as we move forward.
