In addition to its fee increase for visits, which will vary by market, WellPoint will offer primary-care doctors payments for services such as developing treatment plans for patients with chronic diseases. It says physicians will get a chance to make even more if they help pare the overall cost of patients’ care: a bonus amounting to as much as 20% to 30% of any savings they achieve.

WellPoint is also promising that it will give doctors data and staffing help to improve their practices. In return, those doctors will have to meet requirements including some form of 24-hour access for patients and keeping a registry to monitor chronic-disease care.
