BLOG: Collaborative care payment models for optometry

March 2, 2015

As one of the leading advocates for optometry providing primary health care in addition to traditional eye care, I am often asked how we will be paid for the additional services and administrative support that are required.

Primary health care, in addition to medical eye care, are going to be paid as part of several new programs that are part of health care reform. These programs include pay-for-performance, bundled disease state management, capitated risk arrangements and collaborative care. All of these payment models will require optometrists to provide and bill for medical services in a different way.
