Capitation Fee: A method of payment for health services in which an individual or institutional provider is paid a fixed, per capita amount without regard to the actual number or nature of services provided to each patient.Fees, Medical: Amounts charged to the patient as payer for medical services.Fee Schedules: A listing of established professional service charges, for specified dental and medical procedures.Risk Sharing, Financial: Any system which allows payors to share some of the financial risk associated with a particular patient population with providers. Providers agree to adhere to fixed fee schedules in exchange for an increase in their payor base and a chance to benefit from cost containment measures. Common risk-sharing methods are prospective payment schedules (PROSPECTIVE PAYMENT SYSTEM), capitation (CAPITATION FEES), diagnosis-related fees (DIAGNOSIS-RELATED GROUPS), and pre-negotiated fees.Fee-for-Service Plans: Method of charging whereby a physician or other practitioner bills for each encounter or service rendered. In addition to physicians, other health care professionals are reimbursed via this mechanism. Fee-for-service plans contrast with salary, per capita, and prepayment systems, where the payment does not change with the number of services actually used or if none are used.

Risk-adjusted capitation based on the Diagnostic Cost Group Model: an empirical evaluation with health survey information. (1/179)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the predictive accuracy of the Diagnostic Cost Group (DCG) model using health survey information. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Longitudinal data collected for a sample of members of a Dutch sickness fund. In the Netherlands the sickness funds provide compulsory health insurance coverage for the 60 percent of the population in the lowest income brackets. STUDY DESIGN: A demographic model and DCG capitation models are estimated by means of ordinary least squares, with an individual's annual healthcare expenditures in 1994 as the dependent variable. For subgroups based on health survey information, costs predicted by the models are compared with actual costs. Using stepwise regression procedures a subset of relevant survey variables that could improve the predictive accuracy of the three-year DCG model was identified. Capitation models were extended with these variables. DATA COLLECTION/EXTRACTION METHODS: For the empirical analysis, panel data of sickness fund members were used that contained demographic information, annual healthcare expenditures, and diagnostic information from hospitalizations for each member. In 1993, a mailed health survey was conducted among a random sample of 15,000 persons in the panel data set, with a 70 percent response rate. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The predictive accuracy of the demographic model improves when it is extended with diagnostic information from prior hospitalizations (DCGs). A subset of survey variables further improves the predictive accuracy of the DCG capitation models. The predictable profits and losses based on survey information for the DCG models are smaller than for the demographic model. Most persons with predictable losses based on health survey information were not hospitalized in the preceding year. CONCLUSIONS: The use of diagnostic information from prior hospitalizations is a promising option for improving the demographic capitation payment formula. This study suggests that diagnostic information from outpatient utilization is complementary to DCGs in predicting future costs.  (+info)

Prepaid capitation versus fee-for-service reimbursement in a Medicaid population. (2/179)

Utilization of health resources by 37,444 Medicaid recipients enrolled in a capitated health maintenance organization was compared with that of 227,242 Medicaid recipients enrolled in a traditional fee-for-service system over a 1-year period (1983-1984) in the state of Kentucky. Primary care providers in the capitated program had financial incentives to reduce downstream costs like specialist referral, emergency room use, and hospitalizations. The average number of physician visits was similar for both groups (4.47/year in the capitated program; 5.09/year in the fee-for-service system). However, the average number of prescriptions (1.9 versus 4.9 per year), average number of hospital admissions per recipient (0.11 versus 0.22 per year), and average number of hospital days per 1,000 recipients (461 versus 909 per year) were 5% to 60% lower in the capitated group than in the fee-for-service group. The Citicare capitated program resulted in a dramatic reduction in healthcare resource utilization compared with the concurrent fee-for-service system for statewide Medicaid recipients.  (+info)

The political economy of capitated managed care. (3/179)

Despite the fact that billions of dollars are being invested in capitated managed care, it has yet to be subjected to the rigors of robust microeconomic modeling; hence, the seemingly intuitive assumptions driving managed care orthodoxy continue to gain acceptance with almost no theoretical examination or debate. The research in this paper finds the standard unidimensional model of risk generally used to analyze capitation--i.e., that risk is homogenous in nature, organizationally fungible, and linear in amplitude--to be inadequate. Therefore, the paper proposes to introduce a multidimensional model based on the assumption that phenomenologically unrelated species of risk result from non-homogenous types of socioeconomic activity in the medical marketplace. The multidimensional analysis proceeds to concentrate on two species of risk: probability risk and technical risk. A two-dimensional risk matrix reveals that capitation, far from being a market-oriented solution, actually prevents the formation of a dynamic price system necessary to optimize marketplace trades of medical goods and services. The analysis concludes that a universal attempt to purchase healthcare through capitation or any other insurance mechanism would render the reasonable attainment of social efficiency highly problematic. While in reality there are other identifiable species of risk (such as cost-utility risk), the analysis proceeds to hypothesize what a market-oriented managed care approach might look like within a two-dimensional risk matrix.  (+info)

Use of ineffective or unsafe medications among members of a Medicare HMO compared to individuals in a Medicare fee-for-service program. (4/179)

Adverse drug reactions and inappropriate prescribing practices are an important cause of hospitalization, morbidity, and mortality in the elderly. This study compares prescribing practices within a Medicare risk contract health maintenance organization (HMO) in 1993 and 1994 with prescribing practices for two nationally representative samples of elderly individuals predominantly receiving medical care within the Medicare fee-for-service sector. Information on prescriptions in the fee-for-service sector came from the 1987 National Medical Expenditures Survey (NMES) and the 1992 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS). A total of 20 drugs were studied; these drugs were deemed inappropriate for the elderly because their risk of causing adverse events exceeded their health benefits, according to a consensus panel of experts in geriatrics and pharmacology. One or more of the 20 potentially inappropriate drugs was prescribed to 11.53% of the Medicare HMO members in 1994. These medications were prescribed significantly less often to HMO members in 1994 than to individuals in the fee-for-service sector, based on information from both the 1987 NMES and the 1992 MCBS. Utilization of unsafe or ineffective medications actually decreased with increasing age in the HMO sample, with lowest rates in individuals over the age of 85. However, no relationship between age and medication use was seen in the NMES study, except for individuals over the age of 90 years. The study data support the conclusion that ineffective or unsafe medications were prescribed less often in the Medicare HMO than in national comparison groups. In fact, for the very old, who are most at risk, the use of these medications was much lower in the Medicare HMO than in the Medicare fee-for-service sector. Nevertheless, in 1994, approximately one of every nine members of this Medicare HMO received at least one such medication. Continued efforts and innovative strategies to further reduce the use of unsafe and ineffective drugs among elderly Medicare HMO members are needed.  (+info)

Economic winners and losers after introduction of an effective new therapy depend on the type of payment system. (5/179)

An effective therapy for a costly illness has economic consequences. There may also be differences between provider costs and payer costs and initial versus long-term costs; costs may also vary with the reimbursement scheme. Consider the case of an effective therapy to prevent restenosis after coronary angioplasty. Assume that the initial provider cost of angioplasty is $12,000 and that restenosis within 6 months results in repeat angioplasty in 20% of cases, with a follow-up cost of $2,400, or $14,400 total. Assume that a therapy costs $1,000 per angioplasty and decreases restenosis by 50%, resulting in repeat angioplasty in 10% of cases. This will result in an initial cost of $13,000 and a follow-up cost of $1,300, or $14,300 total. The total societal costs will be -$100, a slight savings. Thus, the $1,100 cost of therapy is offset by reduced costs associated with restenosis, and the societal costs are almost neutral. Assume that under fee for service providers charge costs plus 10% and that without the new therapy either a package price or a capitated system is revenue neutral. Changes in costs resulting from therapy to prevent restenosis are as follows (plus sign indicates cost or loss; minus sign indicates savings or profit): [table: see text] Under fee for service, the payer takes the risks, and the economic consequences to providers are minimal. The situation is reversed under capitation. For whoever takes the risk, there is an initial loss to pay for the therapy, but a long-term gain due to less restenosis. Under package pricing, the providers lose because of the cost of therapy and fewer procedures, while the payers gain. A new therapy, even if it is revenue neutral to society overall, may have considerable economic consequences, which vary with time and with the different perspectives of providers and payers.  (+info)

Clinical improvement with bottom-line impact: custom care planning for patients with acute and chronic illnesses in a managed care setting. (6/179)

A fully capitated, integrated healthcare delivery system endeavored to improve the care of its sickest members. A computer algorithm severity index that encompassed a 1-year history of hospitalization and adjusted for inclusion of a variety of chronic conditions was calculated on the basis of clinical and administrative claims databases for the entire membership of the healthcare system. Monthly updated lists were produced to find patients with acute and chronic illnesses. These patients accounted for one-fourth of hospital admissions and almost half of inpatient days, but they numbered less than 1% of system membership. Each listed person, regardless of age or diagnosis, had a custom care plan formulated by nurses in consultation with the primary care physician and involved specialists. Plan development featured in-home assessments in most instances and incorporated a variety of ancillary services, telephone and home-care follow-up, and strategies to increase continuity and access to care. Patient-reported functional status was obtained at establishment of the care plan and periodically thereafter in expectation of raising the cross-sectional mean values of the population. Three months after initiation of the program, the expected winter hospitalization peak did not occur, and utilization tended to be lower in subsequent months. Inpatient admissions among members with acute and chronic illnesses decreased 20%, and inpatient days decreased 28% from baseline levels. Among the subset of seniors in the population, inpatient days decreased 37%. Net financial impact was a medical expenditure decrease of more than 5% from 1995 levels. On a population basis, functional status was raised, and the acuity of patients' conditions and need for inpatient hospital care were reduced.  (+info)

Physicians' views on capitated payment for medical care: does familiarity foster acceptance? (7/179)

Physicians' attitudes toward capitated payment have not been quantified. We sought to assess physicians' views on capitated payment and to compare the views of those who did and did not participate in such payment. A written survey was given to 200 physicians with admitting privileges at a 600-bed Ohio hospital; 82 (41%) responded and were included in this study. Among respondents, 21 (26%) were primary care physicians, 18 (22%) were medical subspecialists, and 18 (22%) were surgeons. Fifty-eight (71%) were providers for managed care plans, and 35 (43%) participated in capitated payment arrangements. Among physicians who did not participate in capitated care, 100% believed that there was a conflict of interest in capitated payment, and 77% (23 physicians) believed that participation in plans that reduce physician income in proportion to medical expenditures is not acceptable. Among those who did participate in capitated payment contracts, 95% (41 physicians) believed these plans posed a conflict of interest, and 72% (31 physicians) said this was not acceptable (P = 0.4 and 0.66 for each comparison). There was no trend toward the opinion that capitated payment arrangements are acceptable with greater levels of experience in capitated care (P = 0.5 by Spearman test). There were trends suggesting that compared with those who were not receiving capitated payments, those who received capitated payment were 50% more likely to have never discussed capitated payment with any patient (63% versus 42%, P = 0.08), were 70% more likely to very strongly oppose the use of capitation to pay their own family's physicians (49% versus 29%, P = 0.07), and were 30% more likely to believe that it is impossible to stay in the practice of medicine without participating in capitated payment plans (84% versus 65%, P = 0.06). None of the respondents reported that they had a contractual "gag clause," but 34% (27 physicians) said they would not speak publicly about any perceived risks of capitated payments anyway. Among this sample of physicians, those who participated in existing capitated payment managed care plans had views that were as negative, or more negative, on the acceptability of capitated payment as did those of nonparticipating physicians. Many were participating in capitated payment plans in spite of these negative views because they feared that to do otherwise would force them out of medical practice. The hypotheses generated by this study must be tested in larger, national studies.  (+info)

Referrals by general internists and internal medicine trainees in an academic medicine practice. (8/179)

Patient referral from generalists to specialists is a critical clinic care process that has received relatively little scrutiny, especially in academic settings. This study describes the frequency with which patients enrolled in a prepaid health plan were referred to specialists by general internal medicine faculty members, general internal medicine track residents, and other internal medicine residents; the types of clinicians they were referred to; and the types of diagnoses with which they presented to their primary care physicians. Requested referrals for all 2,113 enrolled prepaid health plan patients during a 1-year period (1992-1993) were identified by computer search of the practice's administrative database. The plan was a full-risk contract without carve-out benefits. We assessed the referral request rate for the practice and the mean referral rate per physician. We also determined the percentage of patients with diagnoses based on the International Classification of Diseases, 9th revision, who were referred to specialists. The practice's referral request rate per 100 patient office visits for all referral types was 19.8. Primary care track residents referred at a higher rate than did nonprimary care track residents (mean 23.7 vs. 12.1; P < .001). The highest referral rate (2.0/100 visits) was to dermatology. Almost as many (1.7/100 visits) referrals were to other "expert" generalists within the practice. The condition most frequently associated with referral to a specialist was depression (42%). Most referrals were associated with common ambulatory care diagnoses that are often considered to be within the scope of generalist practice. To improve medical education about referrals, a better understanding of when and why faculty and trainees refer and don't refer is needed, so that better models for appropriate referral can be developed.  (+info)

Our review provides the first systematic evidence synthesis of the literature on the effects of recent organizational changes to primary care in Canada on health system performance outcomes. We found moderate quality evidence that interdisciplinary team-based models of care such as Quebecs FMGs and Albertas PCNs led to reductions in emergency department use, but the evidence was mixed for hospital admissions. We also found low quality evidence that team-based models, blended capitation models and pay-for-performance incentives led to small and sometimes non-significant improvements in processes of care as measured by the delivery of screening and prevention services and chronic disease management. Studies examining the effects of new payment models in Ontario on physician costs and productivity were of high methodological quality and provided a coherent body of evidence assessing enhanced FFS and blended capitation payment models. Findings indicated that moving from enhanced FFS to blended ...

Physician payments and methods of remuneration have been topics of increasing interest as policy makers search for the "right" payment policy to balance physicians, patients, and payers interests [1]. Physicians may be incentivized to provide fewer or more services depending on the payment methods, yet how sensitive they are to the financial incentives may depend on their level of altruism [2].. In most countries, payers also have a responsibility towards maintaining and improving the health of the population within budget constraints. In this context, payers - in many cases, governments - introduced different ways of remunerating physicians, particularly in primary care. One example is the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) in the UK, a program that blends capitation payment with incentives and rewards for primary care physicians to meet performance targets. Most of these targets are related to the management of common chronic conditions, and the delivery of preventive services [3]. The ...

Under this system, healthcare providers take responsibility for much of the financial risk that may arise from providing health services to patients.10 Because the total number of patients enrolled with a healthcare provider may be relatively small, the threat of "adverse selection" (registering patients who use considerably more healthcare resources than covered by their capitation payment) is great. For example, the 10% of Medicaid enrolees who make the most use of resources account for around 70% of all Medicaid payments.11 Consequently, without some method of risk adjustment of payments, healthcare providers will compete to attract healthy patients who are unlikely to make much use of their services. Sicker patients may find it difficult to find a healthcare provider who is willing to register them.. To overcome this problem, diagnosis based risk adjustment models have been developed to modify the payments made to health maintenance organisations and health plans. For example, the US Federal ...

Improper Fiscal Year 2002 Medicare Fee-for-Service Payments (US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General, Audit Report A-17-02-02202, January 2003, .pdf format, 18p.).. Abstract:. This final report presents the results of our review of fiscal year (FY) 2002 Medicare fee-for-service claims. The objective of this review was to estimate the extent of fee-for-service payments that did not comply with Medicare laws and regulations. This is the seventh year that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) has estimated these improper payments. As part of our analysis, we have profiled the last 7 years results and identified specific trends where appropriate. Based on our statistical sample, we estimate that improper Medicare benefit payments made during FY 2002 totaled $13.3 billion, or about 6.3 percent of the $212.7 billion in processed fee-for-service payments reported by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), through its Innovation Center, released a new voluntary bundled payment model on Jan. 9 called Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced (BPCI Advanced). This model is intended to build on the lessons from the current Bundled Payments for Care Improvement model that will conclude later this year. BPCI Advanced will qualify as an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (Advanced APM) under the Quality Payment Program (QPP) in 2018. Qualified participants (based on either patient counts or payment) are eligible for a five percent bonus in payment years 2019 through 2024. Under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), Advanced APMs must include the use of certified electronic health records, use quality measures similar to those in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and bear financial risk. In BPCI Advanced, 32 distinct clinical episodes are available to model participants. Of those episodes, 29 are inpatient, ...
Downloadable! This paper analyzes and compares the incentive properties of some common payment mechanisms for GPs, namely fee for service (FFS), capitation and fundholding. It focuses on gatekeeping GPs and it speci cally recognizes GPs heterogeneity in both ability and altruism. It also allows inappropriate care by GPs to lead to more serious illnesses. The results are as follows. Capitation is the payment mechanism that induces the most referrals to expensive specialty care. Fundholding may induce almost as much referrals as capitation when the expected costs of GPs care are high relative to those of specialty care. Although driven by nancial incentives of different nature, the strategic behaviours associated with fundholding and FFS are very much alike. Finally, whether a regulator should use one or another payment mechanism for GPs will depend on (i) his priorities (either cost-containment or quality enhancement) which, in turn, depend on the expected cost difference between GPs care and specialty
The ultimate goal of MACRA is to reward providers for better, lower-cost, patient-centered care. This is yet another example of the CMS moving away from fee-for-service payments and, instead, embracing APMs. The goal of the CMS is to have 50% of Medicare payments be made through APMs, and have 90% of remaining fee-for-service payments tied to quality and value by the end of 2018.. ...
MO enrollment in Orange County remains strong, capturing more than 50 percent of the private insurance market, as HMO premiums remain lower than those of other options. Two years ago, many local observers expected less restrictive insurance products to emerge, reflecting both the national trend away from tightly managed products and the shaky financial footing of Orange County physician organizations. Medical groups-ranging from the 900-physician Monarch independent practice association (IPA) to Bristol Park Medical Group, now with fewer than 100 physicians-are central to the local delegated-HMO model in which health plans largely delegate financial risk and care management activities to contracting physician groups. A key feature of the delegated model is health plans use of fixed per-member, per-month payments, or capitation, which since the mid-1980s has encouraged medical groups to invest in the financial and care management systems needed to manage risk.. In the late 1990s, flat payments ...
Summary: The research goal is to work out criteria for the evaluation of medical care quality. Materials included 386 medical cards of daily in-patients, 216 medical cards of in-patients; 602 cards of analysis of case histories; 4 computer data bases. Methods of mathematical statistics were successfully used in the study. The comparative method of data analysis was applied to the research work. Intensity of medical care in values from 0,1 to 0,5 conditional units corresponded to requirements of criterion of estimation of medical care quality. Parameters of medicinal treatment were close to the standards of treatment in interval from 44,4 to 100%, as criterion of quality of medical care.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center) announced the launch of a new voluntary bundled payment model called Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced (BPCI Advanced). Under traditional fee-for-service payment, Medicare pays providers for each individual service they perform. Under this bundled payment model, participants can earn additional payment if all expenditures for a beneficiarys episode of care are under a spending target that factors in quality. Bundled payments create incentives for providers and practitioners to work together to coordinate care and engage in continuous improvement to keep spending under a target amount. BPCI Advanced Participants may receive payments for performance on 32 different clinical episodes, such as major joint replacement of the lower extremity (inpatient) and percutaneous coronary intervention (inpatient or outpatient). Of note, BPCI Advanced will qualify as an Advanced ...
[email protected] Track Description Recent advances in Healthcare Information Technology have changed the way medicine is practiced in multiple ways. It has changed the way practitioners relate to and interact with patients, empowered patients and provided opportunities for patient-centered care. To effectively harness the gains from the adoption and use of electronic medical records systems (1), workflows have changed at the provider and payer ends. Further, information technology has also enabled the delivery of care at the place and time it is needed resulting in an expansion of the physical setting of the health workplace and taking treatments into the home.. Worldwide, the rising cost of care has challenged the traditional fee-for-service payment model. As governments grapple with ways to reduce ballooning health costs, they are funding research into a wide range of online health services (2). Additionally, value-based reimbursement and bundled payment models are being developed ...

Payment: EPMs are retrospective payment models. CMS would set target prices using a combination of historical hospital-specific data and regional data, adjusting for complexity of treatment. Payment occurs through a phased-in approach. For year one through the first quarter of year two, potential exists for a gain of up to 5 percent with no downside risk. Varying amounts of downside risk would be introduced beginning the second quarter of year two (April 2018) with participants having to repay up to 5 percent through year two. In year three, participants would either gain or repay up to 10 percent and in years four and five, the amount would increase to 20 percent. Evaluation: CMS would evaluate EPMS based on quality during the episode, after the episode ends, and for longer durations. CMS would examine outcomes and patient experience measures. For additional information, visit CMS website.. II. ADVANCED APM TRACK UNDER EPMs CMS proposes that through participating in EPMs for AMI and/or CABG, ...
A study published in the current issue of Health Services Research re-examines the effects of Medicaid payment generosity on access and care. The authors found that higher payments improve the probability of adult beneficiaries having at least one doctor/healthcare professional visit in a year, but does not affect their use of the emergency department or dentist. Among the adult population, higher payments also lead to increased beneficiary satisfaction and better communication between doctors and patients. There was no effect to the preventative care or immediate medical care among children. The results show, "the limited impact of Medicaid rates on beneficiary access and use suggests that modest pay cuts might be an appropriate policy option when state budgets get tight," co-author Stephen Zuckerman explains. The authors examined the National Surveys of Americas Families for years 1997, 1999, and 2002 and the Urban Institute Medicaid capitation rate surveys. The authors conclude that states ...
New research just out in the journal Psychology and Aging says pessimists live longer and healthier lives. If this is true, then contemplating the future of anesthesiology ought to make us immortal, because our professional prospects dont look bright. As we teach residents to do what weve always done, shouldnt we ask ourselves honestly if were training them for a future that doesnt exist?. Especially here in California, it seems likely that our predominantly MD-provided, fee-for-service practice of anesthesiology will not survive indefinitely, and perhaps not for long. We can blame the reelection of President Obama and the passage of the Affordable Care Act if we like, but the reality is that market forces were eventually going to catch up with us whether or not Mitt Romney went to the White House.. In a way, were the victims of our own success; weve made anesthesia so safe that everyone thinks theres nothing to it. But thats exactly the point. Technology has indeed made anesthesia much ...
Low-value care, or patient care that provides no net benefit in specific clinical scenarios, remains one of the most pressing problems in healthcare across the world-namely because it raises costs, causes iatrogenic patient harm, and often interferes with the delivery of high-value care. Many have argued that above all else the primary cause of low-value care lies in an unchecked fee-for-service payment system, which creates a pervasive culture that rewards providers for delivering more care, not necessarily the right care. Results reported by McAlister et al in this issue of BMJ Quality & Safety seem to up-end this belief.1 In their analysis of 3.4 million beneficiaries in the globally-budgeted health system of Alberta, Canada, they found that low-value care commonly occurred-at a rate of approximately 5% of beneficiaries seeking care, and as high as 30% among those aged ,75 years. Notably, these rates are comparable to rates in Americas largely unrestrained fee-for-service system for both ...
From our lingering economic malaise to the fundamental transformation now under way in how health care is delivered, to the shift from the fee-for-service payment system to a value-based system, leading a hospital today aint for the faint of heart.
In the medium-scale collaborative project with partners inside and outside the EU, scientific institutes with the capacities to conduct sound investigations will cooperate with worldwide active international health service organisations which have information and global links for research on international mobility. General objective is to research on current trends of mobility of health professionals to, from and within the EU. Research will also be conducted in Non-European sending and receiving countries, but the focus lies on the EU: comparative studies in a selected range of representative states will determine the impact of different types of migration on national health systems. An innovative approach will generate more comparable, specified and qualified data gathered by mainly qualitative research and aims for quantities of migration flows as well as detailed qualities like professions, motives, circumstances and the social context, i.e. push and pull factors. Crucial for the approach ...

Intent Patients receive safe and high-quality care by being involved in decisions and planning about current and future care. Reflective questions What systems and processes are available for clinicians to partner with patients or their substitute decision-maker to plan, communicate, set goals, and make decisions about current and future care?

No previously published research assesses the usefulness of incorporating pharmacy data into prospective risk adjustment techniques in any national health system. To date, research in the European and Spanish contexts has focused on using diagnoses-based risk assessment variables [3, 11]. However, our study, as well as others carried out within the Spanish National Health System [20], determined that the accuracy of the diagnostic codes allocated by primary health care physicians in their computerised medical records could be improved.. The results of this study confirm that much can be learned by looking at pharmacy data, especially when forecasting drug expenditures. Studies carried out in the U.S [21, 22] and Europe [23] have outlined the potential of pharmacy data to improve the system of risk adjustment for both care management program capitation payments and pharmacy budget planning. This is of particular interest in a situation in which the information related to drug consumption is ...
In 2013, Governor Kasich convened a CEO-level Advisory Council on Payment Innovation to help transform Ohio from volume-based fee-for-service payments to value-based payments that reward better health outcomes. The council identified experts to assist the state in designing value-based payment models that (1) support patient-centered medical homes and (2) reduce the incentive to overuse unnecessary services within high-cost episodes of care. Together, these models have the potential to benefit up to 90 percent of the states population by paying for what works to maintain and improve health while holding down the total cost of care.. In December 2014, Ohio was awarded a federal State Innovation Model (SIM) test grant to implement a payment model that increases access to patient-centered medical homes (PCMH) statewide as well as to implement an episode-based payment model statewide..

As the number of Medicare beneficiaries receiving care under at-risk capitation arrangements increases, the method for setting payment rates will come under increasing scrutiny. A number of modifications to the current adjusted average per capita cost (AAPCC) methodology have been proposed, including an adjustment for prior utilization. In this article, we propose use of a utilization adjustment that includes only hospitalizations involving low or moderate physician discretion in the decision to hospitalize. This modification avoids discrimination against capitated systems that prevent certain discretionary admissions. The model also explains more of the variance in per capita expenditures than does the current AAPCC ...

Wait, didnt President Obama promise us that the new health care law would preserve choice for us? Didnt he promise us lower costs? Well, in spite of much good that the law accomplished in terms of providing access to health insurance, these are two areas that have gone awry. For a variety of reasons--most of which have little to do with providing you with better care--the hospital world has grown more centralized. Its done so to reduce competition and get better rates from insurance companies. Its done so to create larger risk pools of patients under the "rate reform" that incorporates more bundled and capitated payments. Its done so to keep you as a captive customer for your health care needs. Its been aided and abetted by electronic health record companies that find a mutual advantage with their hospital colleagues in minimizing the ability of your EHR to be easily transferable to other health systems. As Ive noted, we truly have created "business cost structures in search of revenue ...

There is a new type of plan out there. It is called Fee for Service. In this plan, the doctor performs the treatment agreed and the patient pays him (unique, isn t it!). Traditional Indemnity Plans are where a third party pays for the dental service after it is performed. This payment is in the form of a table of allowances, a UCR table or schedule of allowances. The reimbursement levels are usually capped at an average of one thousand dollars per annum. This cap hasn t changed much in over twenty years. A deductible is the amount that the patient must pay before any of their benefits come into effect; in some plans the deductible is waived by the benefit plan for preventive care. A co-charge is the amount that the patient must pay to make up the difference between your submitted fee and what the benefit pays. Forgiving the deductible or co-charge to decrease the patient s out of pocket expense is considered fraud. Capitation Plans are where the participating doctors are given a list of ...

The National Study of Physician Organizations and the Management of Chronic Illness (NSPO) examined relationships among physician organization characteristics and the implementation of care management processes (CMP) aimed at improving outcomes and reducing costs for the treatment of four chronic diseases: asthma, congestive heart failure (CHF), depression, and diabetes. To that end, NSPO conducted this national survey of medical groups and independent practice associations (IPA) with 20 or more physicians. An IPA is defined as an organization through which physicians contract with managed care plans. Examples of CMPs include evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, protocols and pathways, case and care management systems, and disease management, demand management, and health promotion programs. Interviews were conducted with the medical director, president, or chief executive officer of each surveyed physician organization. The survey collected data on (1) practice type, size, age, ...
Laboratory assessment of children with CH allows appropriate dose adjustments of levothyroxine. The frequency of laboratory assessment must ensure that abnormal thyroid function levels are corrected immediately. The AAP has promulgated standards recommending T4 and TSH levels at 1- to 3-month intervals for the first 3 years of life. However, capitation payments require prospective evaluation of medical practice guidelines, because financial penalties exist for unnecessary laboratory studies.. This review demonstrates that changes in the dose of levothyroxine depend on the initial dose. A total of 55% of the children treated with .0375 mg/day of levothyroxine as an initial dose required a dose change, whereas 89 percent of children treated with .025 mg/day required a dose change within the first 12 months. Ten of the latter group required a subsequent change to .050 mg/day during the first year. This difference can be explained by the higher dose per kilogram of body weight in the group receiving ...

School health activities have been very important in improving adolescent health in Sweden for almost 200 years. In the 1800s, emphasis was on medical services. Vaccination programs and medical examinations became the key issues. Deterioration of adolescent health in the 1960s changed the objectives of both school education and health services to health promotion. Important members of the community followed suit and involvement of the local community has remained a hallmark, even though the extent and direction varies. The subsequent period was characterized by substantial improvement in adolescent health behavior. The latter years of the 1980s and the 1990s saw deterioration of adolescent health behavior. Less emphasis on health promotion, decentralization of school health responsibility from physicians to administrators, and heavy savings directed toward schools were important mediators. Adolescents were also more engaged in international youth cultures with liberal practices, such as drug ...
Marcy TW, Thabault P, Olson J, Tooze JA, Liberty B, Nolan S. Smoking status identification: two managed care organizations experiences with a pilot project to implement identification systems in independent practice associations. Am J Manag Care. 2003 Oct;9(10):672-6. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether managed care organizations (MCOs) can effectively promote the sustained use of smoking status identification systems among independent practice associations. STUDY DESIGN: Quasi-experimental design measuring smoking status documentation before and after an intervention. METHODS: A chart review of the MCOs patients at 4 participating primary care clinics determined the baseline for smoking status documentation before intervention. Baseline data were unavailable from a fifth participating clinic. Two quality improvement personnel were sent by the MCOs to help the clinics chose and implement a system for identifying smoking status. All of the clinics chose a sticker system. The change in smoking ...
This study is the first of its kind to investigate the perspectives of the supply side on delivering public health care under the contract service. Different from most preceding studies that only focused on village doctors, our study places emphasis on the THC managers as well. It is somewhat surprising in our study that the managers were also dissatisfied with their work conditions. While most health providers in this study complained about the heavy workload, insufficient remuneration and overlook or contempt exhibited by patients and supervisors, the contract actually facilitated them to provide villagers with more public health service and forced them to begin to commit to primary health care. Meanwhile, the villagers who had received the contract services felt satisfied with the doctor-patient relationship. In developed countries, general practitioners were commonly inclined to consider that they had the overall responsibility for the patients primary health care in a capitation-based ...
Study Purpose: The specific goals of NSPO2 were to: (1) Assess the degree to which use of CMPs and preventive services at large physician organizations has increased and update the measurement of the key factors associated with use of CMPs and preventive care (e.g., market and regulatory incentives, IT capabilities) and the relationships among incentives, IT, and care management; (2) Continue to explore cost-effective approaches to obtain information on CMPs, preventive services, and their drivers in smaller physician practices; (3) Assess the reliability and validity of the CMP measurements; (4) Assess the extent to which a physician organizations CMP usage is perceived by that organization to be replaced by, supplemented by, and/or encouraged either by an IPA or a physician-hospital organization (PHO) that it may belong to or by health insurance plan efforts, including disease management programs; (5) Assess the degree to which incentives for quality improvement, both internal and external, ...
I. Civil servants in the Eastern German Laender received lower amounts of remuneration than those in the Federation and the Western German Laender. The Land Saxony adjusted the remuneration for civil servants in remuneration grades up to grade A 9 to the level of the respective Western German remuneration amounts taking effect on 1 January 2008. The remuneration grades A 10 and above were kept at the lower level of the Eastern German remuneration amounts until 31 December 2009. In order to rule out the situation that a civil servant in grade A 10 received smaller amounts of remuneration and benefits than a comparable civil servant in grade A 9, the differential between the remuneration according to grade A 9 (West) and grade A 10 (East) was paid, and an additional EUR 10 was granted. If a civil servant in grade A 10 received the same or an insignificantly higher amount as a comparable civil servant in grade A 9, the additional EUR 10 was not granted. Beyond the later adjustment to the higher ...
An overwhelming majority (73 percent) of surveyed health insurance executives are planning major, technology-driven transformation at their organizations, with even more (80 percent) moving towards value-based payment models, according to recent research from Burlington, Mass.-based vendor HealthEdge.. The survey results of more than 100 payer executives show that while health insurers understand the significance of participating in a variety of new healthcare business models including value-based payments (80 percent), exchanges (69 percent) and accountable care organizations (ACOs, 55 percent), they remain hampered by a number of key factors that prevent them from effectively participating in these new approaches. These include a continued reliance on manual business processes, legacy technology and hard-to-maintain satellite systems, all of which are also contributing to the high administrative costs that currently plague the industry, survey found.. Further, health insurers face mounting ...

Marylands transition to the new system took place ahead of schedule. Under the CMMI agreement, Maryland was supposed to transition 80 percent of hospital revenue away from fee-for-service payments by the end of 2018. Yet in practice, by mid-2014, the state had already transitioned 95 percent of hospital revenue away from fee-for-service.16 According to stakeholders, Maryland hospitals largely concluded that it would be a better business strategy to avoid a period of uncertainty and make a quick transition away from fee for service to set themselves up for success under the new global budget system.17 This is a dynamic that might not necessarily repeat itself in other states, given Marylands long history of hospital rate setting.. In addition, Maryland achieved the five-year Medicare savings target it had promised the CMMI well ahead of schedule. According to the state Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC), by the end of 2016, the new model had already generated $586 million in ...
Background: Repeated symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs) affect 25% of people who use clean intermittent self-catheterisation (CISC) to empty their bladder. We aimed to determine the benefits, harms, and cost-effectiveness of continuous low-dose antibiotic prophylaxis for prevention of recurrent UTIs in adult users of CISC. Methods: In this randomised, open-label, superiority trial, we enrolled participants from 51 UK National Health Service organisations. These participants were community-dwelling (as opposed to hospital inpatient) users of CISC with recurrent UTIs. We randomly allocated participants (1:1) to receive either antibiotic prophylaxis once daily (prophylaxis group) or no prophylaxis (control group) for 12 months by use of an internet-based system with permuted blocks of variable length. Trial and laboratory staff who assessed outcomes were masked to allocation but participants were aware of their treatment group. The primary outcome was the incidence of symptomatic, ...
Each year, CMS calculates the Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) improper payment rate through the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) program. CERT evaluates a statistically valid random sample of claims to determine if they were paid properly under Medicare coverage, coding, and billing rules and publishes the Medicare Fee-for-Service Improper Payment Report. The estimated 2013 Medicare FFS compliance rate?the percentage of Medicare dollars paid correctly?was 89.9%. This calculation included claims submitted during the 12-month period from July 2011 through June 2012, meaning that Medicare paid an estimated $321.4 billion correctly during this time. The report documents the results of Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) fiscal year 2013 auditing efforts.
