True Performance Programs

What is True Performance?

True Performance is the foundational program of Highmark's physician value-based reimbursement (VBR) strategy. The program evaluates PCPs’ ability to deliver the right care at the right time and in the most appropriate setting through its intense focus on care coordination and population health management principles. PCPs are rewarded for their performance on quality and cost/utilization metrics and may be eligible to earn monthly care coordination reimbursement and quarterly or annual lump sum reimbursement. PCP entities with 250 or more members are eligible to participate in the program.

Training modules and educational resources are available to help ensure a smooth transition into the True Performance Program. Program participants should log into our provider portal(s) and select Quality Blue to view program documentation and receive program updates.

If you have any questions or need additional assistance, please contact your Provider Account Liaison or Clinical Transformation Consultant.
