Intro to Payment Reform
The traditional method for paying doctors and hospitals–fee-for-service–creates incentives for them to provide care, and sometimes, more than their patients need. Payment reform, which ties providers’ payments to their performance on quality measures, attempts to mitigate the incentive to overprescribe care. Learn about this and why employers and other health care purchasers should care.
