2018 Physician Incentive Program 

The Partners For Kids Physician Incentive Committee has announced the structure of the 2018 Physician Incentive Program. Once again, physicians will be asked to participate in one of several potential options to satisfy a network requirement. The network requirement is designed to increase collaboration between PFK physicians and staff and serves as a pre-requisite for the payout of incentive funds. Each physician in the practice needs to complete the requirement for his/her visits to be counted in the incentive calculations.

In addition, because well checks have an impact on the long-term health of our patients and are an area of emphasis for the Ohio Department of Medicaid, three types of well visits will be incentivized in 2018. Physicians will receive incentives for each patient that completes:

  • six well-care visits by age 15 months
  • an annual well check for members ages 3 to 6 years
  • an annual well check for members ages 12 to 18. Adolescents enrolled in the Aged, Blind and Disabled or Foster Care programs are eligible up to age 21.

Please refer to the attached 2018 PFK Physician Incentive Program Summary and Frequently Asked Questions for more details, including available resources.
