Docs see value in shift from fee-for-service

Over a year ago, pre-parity rules being released, we had mentioned to our clients and colleagues about how the fee-for-service model would (sometime relatively soon) be phased out in exchange for a outcome-based model.

Many have asked: “What will that look like in behavioral healthcare?”

And our answer: “We’ll tell you when we see it.”

In the meantime, medical healthcare is starting to test the waters, as this article from entitled “Reform Update: Docs see value in shift from fee-for-service” discusses –
