Quality vs. Fee for Service

Our Value-Based Programs are focused on improving care coordination and strengthening primary care services to help ensure patients get healthy and stay engaged in their health care. A major component of these programs is improving the way health care professionals are paid.

Under the fee-for-service payment approach, physicians are paid based on the volume of treatments or tests they performed. Working with our partners, we’ve created payment models that reimburse providers for keeping their patient population healthy, helping to improve patient outcomes and affordability.
