• Affinity’s Shared Savings Program – PopAction Analytics for VBP

  • The Affinity Health Plan Shared Savings Program is designed to create greater alignment between Affinity and its participating providers in the areas of quality of services and cost effectiveness provided to members.  The objectives of the program are for participating providers to earn incentive payments based on their level of quality achieved and level of shared savings generated. The Shared Savings Program is part of New York State Department of Health’s Value Based Payment requirement.

    Providers in existing Value Based Payment (VBP) arrangements can now view their financial reports on Affinity’s provider portal at AffinityPlan.org/Providers/Portal/Portal-Landing/ under the performance tab using the PopAction Analytics tool. Providers whose performance is at or below the Per Member Per Month (PMPM) or Medical Loss Ratio (MLR) performance target stipulated in their contracts are eligible for savings for the quarter.  The shared savings are modified by the provider’s performance on potentially preventable events (PPEs) (e.g., readmissions, admissions, emergency room visits) and/or quality.

    Affinity welcomes the participation of all our primary care providers in a VBP arrangement.

    On the portal, providers can access VBP-related information on:

    • Financial reports
    • Provider dashboard with access to key metrics related to:
      • Total cost of care
      • Potentially preventable events
      • Utilization
