  1. Capitation adjustment for pediatric populations.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    The objective of this study is to assess the predictive performance of current claims-based capitation adjustment methods for pediatric populations.

    Medicaid programs and other insurers may increasingly use these systems for capitation rate setting, physician profiling, and other purposes.

    Methods

    Five leading models, a demographic model, ambulatory care groups, ambulatory diagnostic groups, diagnostic cost groups, and payment amounts for capitated systems, were tested by using use and expenditure data for children enrolled in the Maryland Medicaid program and a private nonprofit health maintenance organization in Minnesota.

    The models were tested at the individual level by using multiple regression methods and at the group level by using split-half validation to create both random and nonrandom groups.

    One of the nonrandom groups was created to represent children with chronic conditions.

    Results

    The findings indicate that although each of the alternative methods offers an improvement over a demographic model, significant underpayment remained for high-risk children, regardless of the capitation adjustment method used.

    Conclusions

    It is concluded that children with chronic conditions would probably remain at risk for discrimination in a competitive health care market under all models tested.

    Limitations associated with current alternatives suggest the need for further research in the area of pediatric capitation adjustment methods.
