Nearly all candidates supported by CALPAC move to general election

October 12, 2021

There continues to be a big push away from paying physicians under traditional fee-for-service models and toward payment based on providing high-value, population-based care. This shift was further magnified by COVID-19, demonstrating how important it is that physicians have the support and resources to be financially resilient when patient volume dips, but quality does not. 

You may have questions about what this shift toward value-based care means for you and your practice. What is a value-based payment contract? Who offers them? How does it differ from capitation? How do value-based payment contracts differ from each other? What additional revenue will I be eligible for? What resources do I need for my practice to be successful under these models?

CMA is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, at 12:15 p.m. to discuss three different value-based care programs:

  1. Peter Long, Ph.D., Nina Birnbaum, M.D., and Laura Fox from Blue Shield of California will discuss the Primary Care Reimagined program and explain the model and what it could mean to you and your practice. 
  2. Gavin White will be joining us from Aledade to discuss their accountable care organization, which supports value-based care models, including the Medicare Shared Savings Program, and how they support practices in achieving shared savings. 
  3. Crystal Eubanks from PBGH’s California Quality Collaborative will discuss its Advanced Primary Care Standards, who is using them, and how practices are involved.

The one-hour webinar—What is Value Based Care and What Does it mean for My Practice?—is free to members and their staff ($99 for all others). If you are unable to join the live event, it will be available for on-demand viewing.
