California doctors get $10 million bump in bonus payments
Sacramento Business Journal, February 27, 2008
Pay-for-performance bonus payments from health plans to California medical groups totaled $65 million for 2007, $10 million more than the bonuses distributed in 2006, according to the Integrated Healthcare Association. The quality bonuses typically average about 2 percent of annual reimbursements to the participating groups, which critics say is not significant enough to give medical groups a financial incentive to improve quality.
