Clinical Integration Payment 1 for 2020

McLaren Physician Partners (MPP) is pleased to announce the release of the MPP Clinical Integration Payment 1 of 2 for 2020. This payment is based on physician performance on quality measures and value- based payments received from February to July 2020. In response to the financial difficulties our providers are enduring in 2020 due to COVID-19, MPP has waived the 10 point requirement on the Quality Metric Composite measure to be eligible for a payment and all PCPs scoring 55 points or greater are eligible for a CI distribution.

 The total distribution amount is $5,800,827. As we transition to value-based payments our top performing physicians have received the following in this distribution:
