Here are a links to a few of my favorite blogs posts over the years that deal with many of the challenges and considerations that come from of working in risk-bearing/ capitated healthcare:
1) The trade-off between direct costs and downstream TME savings
2) Misalignments with health insurers in risk-bearing healthcare
3) Challenges of capitation for risk-bearing groups
4) Pricing risk/ reward for risk-bearing groups
5) High deductible plans versus HMO
6) Backoffice needs and Corporate structures needed in risk-bearing arrangements
7) More on the “straddle period” between fee-for-service and risk.
