We definitely negotiate directly. What do you mean when you say 'completion rates that affect plan revenues?'

If we can get a win/win with a payer, then I'm in.

Of course I meant to say three-legged stool. Sigh. Getting old ain't for sissies.

Well primary care doctors who are assigned as primary can be given responsibility of those patients and their Medicare metrics. For example if the patients are eligible for colorectal cancer screening then the primary care office would be rewarded with a PMPM or two tiers of PMPM for different levels of achievement. Typically indexed to the Medicare benchmark.

If your group has patients in care that need Medicare checkboxes filled or something similar, then depending on your current agreements you can work in "quality" metrics into your contracts to show an incentive to your doctors and the plan.

I don't know about win/wins with payers, but there are some when payers are excluded, such as primary care paid for directly (w/o 3rd party payers). More time with patients, much lower administrative hassles... Doctors say it's what they envisioned doing when they went to med school. The 1-2 hours of admin work for each hour of time with patients is not what they signed up for.
