In a three-year agreement with Blue Cross, Trinity Health will not abandon its fee-for-service model, in which insurers pay the hospital for each visit, test and procedure.
The agreement will add rewards for hospital facilities that reduce costs, redundant tests and readmission rates.
The new reimbursement model will launch first on the west side of Michigan and move to Trinity Health facilities on the east side of the state by July, MLive reported.
