Updated tip sheet available for specialty value based reimbursement
The value-based reimbursement (VBR)* is the primary method for rewarding specialists in the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Physician Group Incentive Program (PGIP). This program rewards specialists who actively collaborate with primary care physicians and their physician organization leadership to create improved systems and care processes, implement evidence-based care and promote efficient and effective care.
In 2016, The Physician Alliance has 809 specialty physicians, representing 250 practices, earning the VBR from BCBSM. The measures BCBSM uses to select which specialists receive the VBR are population-based, not practice or provider, and reward specialists who serve patient populations with higher overall performance.
*The VBR was formerly called the specialty fee uplift.
