UnitedHealthcare is transforming the way health care is delivered, paid for and rewarded
UnitedHealthcare is significantly expanding its use of accountable care contracts over the next five years across its employer-sponsored, Medicare and Medicaid businesses, working with care providers to transition from fee-for-service contracts to payment models that reward value over volume and improves health outcomes for patients.
Today, more than $20 billion of UnitedHealthcare’s reimbursements to hospitals, physicians and ancillary care are tied to its accountable care initiatives. By the end of 2017, UnitedHealthcare’s accountable care contracts are expected to total $50 billion.
Dr. Sam Ho, UnitedHealthcare Chief Clinical Officer, discusses how UnitedHealthcare's accountable care programs reward care providers for improving patient health.
