What Providers Can Expect
QualityPath designated providers are rewarded for delivering better value in health care services through consumer steerage and recognition as a QualityPath designee to consumers and peers.
Alliance employers incent their employees and family members to seek care from QualityPath providers. Participating Alliance employers offer knee replacement, total hip replacement and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedures at 100 percent coverage so patients have no out-of-pocket expenses for the medical procedure.
Doctors, hospitals and clinics designated as QualityPath providers are highly recognized by consumers as meeting national quality measures and adopting processes that improve care for patients, such as shared decision-making and avoidance of unnecessary imaging.
The Alliance recognizes that providers are equally concerned about improving health care value. Read our QualityPath Guiding Principles.
