A Novel HYBRID Physician Reimbursement Model 2.0?

Current reimbursement structures involve the submission and payment of medical CPT® coded claims. But, some doctors feel they need to “up-code” to maximize revenue or “down-code” for fear of having a claim denied. Contradictory business goals bastardize the system into a payer versus provider tug-of-war, with patient care as a potential bargaining chip. Instituting quality metrics should be included in this equation and, a hybrid reimbursement model may be a viable option while integrating quality care metrics and reducing costs for all stakeholders.

This hybrid reimbursement system might use a two-payment structure.

For the first payment, claims would be paid at hypothetical rate of 60% within one week of submission.

The second payment, consisting of the remaining zero to 40% of some total maximum allowable fee, be paid quarterly. It would be based on scores like patient satisfaction and stewardship of healthcare resources by analyzing a statistically valid sample of patient encounters taken from the electronic health record.

Such a hybrid system would remove unnecessary steps, like re-submitting claims, and would lower the operational and administrative costs of claims processing. These changes would decrease operational cost and drive quality stewardship of the healthcare dollar.
