Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and Northeast Health Systems Physician Hospital Organization Sign Alternative Quality Contract
Date:5/25/2010

itional fee-for-service contracts. It combines two forms of payment. The first is a global, or fixed, payment per patient adjusted for age, sex, and health status that increases annually in line with inflation. The second payment includes substantial performance incentives tied to the latest nationally accepted measures of quality, effectiveness, and patient experience of care. The contract’s global payment covers all services received by a patient, including primary, specialty, and hospital care. So, when a doctor spends more time with a patient and helps the patient avoid an unnecessary hospitalization, the patient receives better care, the doctor and hospital have the potential to receive performance incentives, and the overall costs are less. Employers benefit as the new system moderates cost increases through better care. Visit: www.bluecrossma.com/quality to learn more.
