Hudson Health Plan is always seeking committed health care professionals to join our network and help us to provide the highest quality care to our members. We take a provider-friendly approach, which includes reasonable rates and prompt turnaround of claims for authorized services. Generally, primary care is paid for by monthly capitation payments to participating pediatricians, internists, and family practice physicians. The capitation rate, which covers routine office visits, may vary according to the enrollee's age and sex. Primary care procedures and specialty services are reimbursed on a fee-for-service basis.
Hudson Health Plan has been an early innovator in the area of pay-for-performance programs, including programs in which primary care practices are eligible for incentive payments for providing timely immunizations to newborns and high-quality services to patients living with chronic illness.
By encouraging their patients to enroll, primary care doctors gain access to an extensive network of medical and behavioral health specialists, and the support of the Plan's multilingual Customer Care and Case Management departments.
