Thoroughly exploring how capitation has evolved domestically and internationally in recent years, this book discusses actuarial assumptions and the difficulties in payers'¬" transitions from community-based underwriting to experience-based ratings. It explores what the future holds in the areas of clinical pathways and population-based risk assumption tools and approaches. It covers what happens when the underlying actuarial and risk assumptions are ignored or trivialized. The author also discusses the challenges capitation-based pricing faces from an international perspective, including Latin America and the Caribbean.
