Seven insurers join payment reform initiative in Colorado

Six insurers, along with Medicaid, have announced that they will join the Colorado State Innovation Model, which is aimed at transforming how healthcare is delivered across the state by sharing pricing data with primary care practices and moving away from the fee-for-service model.

The insurers--Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Colorado Choice Health Plans, Kaiser Permanente, Rocky Mountain Health Plans and UnitedHealthcare--have agreed to offer payments to primary care practices based on how well those doctors met goals centered around the quality of their care, according to the Colorado Gazette.
