COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio is getting a four-year federal grant for $75 million to test new payment models aimed at improving patient care.

Greg Moody, director of the Governor’s Office of Health Transformation, says in a news release that sometimes in health care, there’s a financial incentive to provide the wrong service in the wrong place at the wrong time. He says that must be turned around.

Moody says Ohio has worked with providers, health plans and others to build agreement on payment changes. His office has developed a five-year plan to improve overall performance through payment innovation.

It brings together the state’s four largest commercial health insurance plans and five Medicaid managed-care plans to financially reward high-value providers in primary care and certain specialties.

The grant will fund the payment plan.
