There is a dental incentive plan for YourCare members 2-20 years of age. These members are required to receive a dental visit by their assigned dentist at least once per year.
The basic design of the program is for Healthplex to provide Primary Care Professionals such as yourself a listing of all members assigned to your office who have not had a dental visit in 2017. You will receive an incentive bonus of $5.00 for each member you see and recommend that they visit their dentist, and you will receive an additional $15.00 for each of those members who actually visit the dentist this calendar year.
When Healthplex receives a card from your office, a $5.00 incentive will immediately be set aside for you, and the receipt for the card will be entered into the Healthplex database. This will allow Healthplex to track how many doctors are responding to the program, and to track which members have gotten the referral portion of the card. It will also be the trigger for searching for dental visits to pay you the additional $15.00. Your incentive bonus payment for this dental program will be paid out in the first quarter of 2018, once we are able to ascertain utilization for these members.
Both YourCare and Healthplex are extremely optimistic about this initiative. In past years, it has proved to be a simple and timely way to improves this population's access to dental care, and we expect it will be successful this year as well.
We appreciate your cooperation. Should you have any questions regarding this program and how it operates, you may contact Clair Murphy, Government Outreach Associate at Healthplex, at 1.516.740.4810, or via email at email@example.com.
