How you fare under capitation

Warren Surveys talked to about 50 HMOs and community based health plans in 1999 to tally what they were paying physicians in capitation and risk-arrangement contracts. The table indicates what those plans, which had on average 250,000 members, paid to different primary care and specialty physicians. According to Jennifer Marx, M.B.A., a consulting analyst for DeMarco & Associates, which owns Warren Surveys, the data were compared to similar data collected in 1998. Marx says that capitated payments increased — especially for surgical specialties, family practice, urology, and oncology.
