Performance Improvement 2001. Evaluation of Group-Specific Volume Performance Standards Demonstration


The goal of the demonstration is to test the feasibility of this partial risk bearing payment arrangement between the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and qualifying physician-based organizations in the fee-for-service (FFS) market. FFS rules apply within the context of a performance target, beneficiaries are not enrolled, and physician-sponsored organizations develop structures and processes to manage the services and cost of care received by FFS patients.
