In 2016, 29 percent of all health care payments were made through alternative payment models, continuing the movement toward paying for value rather than for volume.
That 29 percent in 2016 was up from 23 percent in 2015.
APMs include shared savings and shared risk programs, bundled payments, and population-based payments.
Fee-for-service and other “legacy” payments accounted for 43 percent of health care payments in 2016 and pay for performance or care coordination fees accounted for another 28 percent of payments.
These numbers come from a report from the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network.
