Contracting with Payers: Demonstrating the Value of Home-Based Primary Care Online Course
As a home-based primary care (HBPC) provider, if you're working in a fee-for-service (FFS) model, you bill each time you provide a service without the opportunity to be paid on quality outcomes. Therefore, the financial resources to enhance your patients' quality of life may be limited. Value-based payment arrangements are increasingly common in the care of homebound, medically complex patients, and the prevalence of payer contracts recognizing the value of HBPC has been a game changer.
In this course, you will learn how to demonstrate the value of Home-Based Primary Care when negotiating with payers to obtain necessary funding to be more supportive of your patients’ needs and to maintain financial sustainability for your practice. Upon completion, you will be able to do the following:
  1. List the various payer types relevant to home-based primary care and distinguish between the characteristics of each.
  2. Identify the key contact individuals to connect with when negotiating contracts with payers.
  3. Demonstrate the value of your HBPC program to payers through presentation of patient quality, utilization and outcome data, and compelling patient stories.
