Vatica ReportingAugust 31st, 2022 | News•Network News
As we enter the last quarter of the year, we are reminding providers about the importance of scheduling annual physicals and Medicare annual wellness visits with their patients. These visits promote better health for patients, and for family and internal medicine providers participating in Vatica, they also serve as an opportunity to improve your Vatica performance and incentive awards.
Participation in Vatica not only provides for significant incentives, it also assists providers with optimizing their incentives under AHP’s PCP Reward Plan. Family and internal medicine providers that participate in Vatica and complete 20% of their targeted Medicare Advantage Vatica visits for the year, earn one citizenship component at the provider level. As a reminder, citizenship accounts for 10% of the reward plan in 2022. Citizenship can be earned by completing two or more citizenship activities at either the practice or provider level during the plan year.
The Vatica program is designed to guide providers through a risk-coding exercise to accurately capture healthcare conditions for high-risk patients. Vatica is beneficial to patients and providers: accurate condition coding can prevent gaps in care for patients, while providers can earn an incentive for each qualifying Vatica visit they perform.
If you have questions about your Vaticia participation, or if you are not currently contracted with Vatica and would like to learn more about the program, please email Jana Darlington.
