Less than half of primary care physicians practice value-based care

Less than half of primary care physicians in the United States receive value-based care payments, according to the "2022 Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey of Primary Care Physicians."

The survey revealed that only 46 percent of physicians reported receiving value-based payments, while 71 percent of respondents said their practice received fee-for-service payments. 

Primary care physicians reported receiving two common types of value-based payments, with 30 percent reporting they received shared savings and 32 percent reporting they received capitation. Practices are likely to receive a combination of payments because they are paid by different payers, the survey said.

The survey also found that practices within large integrated health systems, practices with five or more physicians, or those within suburban or urban areas were more likely to report they received value-based payments.
