Children’s Community Health Plan exceeds Pay-for-Performance measures

Special to The Freeman

June 22, 2015

MILWAUKEE – Children’s Community Health Plan (CCHP) is proud to announce that its results from the 2013 Pay-for-Performance (P4P) program met or exceeded performance measure goals defined by the Department for BadgerCare Plus members in southeastern Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services recently released the results of the 2013 P4P program, which it offers to health plans that serve the BadgerCare Plus program.

The program in southeastern Wisconsin included 20 quality-based measures – each of which includes withholding a percentage of the capitation payments made to participating health plans. This withhold can be earned back by the health plans based on their performance relative to the quality-based measures.

The focus of these quality-based measures included asthma, diabetes, childhood immunizations, blood lead testing, tobacco cessation, emergency room utilization, and dental access for children and adults.

Of the 20 measures tracked by the state, Children’s Community Health Plan exceeded its goal for 19 of them. For example, 80 percent of CCHP’s members in Milwaukee were fully immunized but heir second birthday, which exceeded the Department of Health Services’ goal of 70.7 percent.
