Value-based care models did not grow from 2021 to 2022, though more dollars moved to two-sided risk-based models, according to the Healthcare Payment Learning and Action Network’s annual report published Oct. 30.

In 2022, 40.6% of healthcare dollars were in fee-for-service arrangements with no link to quality or value, similar to 40.5% in 2021. In 2022, 24.5% of dollars were spent in two-sided risk arrangements, up from 19.6% in 2021. The remaining 35% of dollars were spent in fee-for-service arrangements with links to quality or models with upside-risk only.

Overall, 36.1% of covered lives in the report were in value-based payment arrangements.
