Summary of the Project:
This NIHCM-funded study used data from the Massachusetts Group Insurance Commission to investigate whether patient choice of physician under tiered networks varies according to demographic characteristics, health status, physician specialty or type of care being sought. Results are expected to inform the design of tiered networks so they are most effective at directing patients to high-value providers.
