What is Pay for Performance?

A program that offers incentive payments to physicians for following specific quality and efficiency measures.

How do I participate in P4P?

Simply opting into the health plan puts you in the P4P program for that plan. You must incorporate the quality and efficiency measures into your patient care and code those properly to be rewarded. Specialists are eligible for the commercial P4P contracts only.

How will I get paid?

TXCIN receives the check from the health plan and distributes to the physicians that meet the requirements. You can receive your P4P rewards payments through direct deposit — ask your Account Manager or the TXCIN Support Desk (xxx-xxx-xxxx) for more information.

How is that money calculated?

Incentive payment calculations are written into each contract. TXCIN splits the actual dollars by a percentage across the physician population who met the target.

What is the average size of the P4P check?

Check sizes vary. They can range from $100 to over $10,000.

What are quality scores based on?

Star Quality Indicators and HEDIS Measures established by Medicare.
