Population Health Reimbursement: What Providers Need to Know

Harold Gibson

What is Population Health (PH)?

More than 50 percent of all deaths each year are caused by stroke, cancer and heart disease.Population health became a concern for providers and payers due to the need to rein in the incidence and subsequent costs of treating chronic diseases as well as a shift from fee-for-service to value-based care models. It has been recognized by CMS and others for some time that fee-for-service (FFS) is becoming unsustainable, whether from a financial or medical view. For example:

  • Chronic diseases account for 7 out of 10 deaths yearly among Americans.
  • Diabetes, one of the most common chronic illnesses, is the main cause for kidney failure, lower-limb amputations and blindness in adults between 20 and 75.
