7 key points on health plans & value-based arrangements

More health plans are participating in value-based contracts with physicians, according to Geneia.

Here are seven key points;

1. A 2015 Deloitte survey found 72 percent of health plans had one or more patient-centered medical homes for their commercial population and 62 percent had ACOs with shared savings.

2. Forty-five percent of health plans had ACOs with shared risk and 45 percent used global capitation.

3. In the survey, 41 percent propertied using bundled payments.

4. Throughout the United States, there are more than 935 ACOs with 1,300 or more contracts.

5. As these models gain traction, Geneia said physicians have several considerations before participating in a value-based contract with their health plans such as ensuring reporting tools are user-friendly.

6. Physicians should consider whether a reporting tool will work with all of their ACOs and value-based contracts.

7. Geneia said another consideration is ensuring physicians have access to timely information.
