FamilyCare Health Plans

      FamilyCare Health Plans, the first coordinated care organization (CCO) in the tri-county area, announced a major change in the way its primary care providers will be reimbursed during 2013, which for patients means increased access to care. Starting March 1st, they will begin reimbursing primary care providers (PCP) around $75 per office visit-- a big increase over the approximate $40 currently paid to PCP for an average office visit. Jeff Heatherington, president and CEO of FamilyCare, Inc., joined us to share why this change will benefit patients and lower costs in the long run.
