Physicians who opt-in to the Residential Care Initiative (RCI) are eligible to receive a variety of benefits and incentives:
Physicians who participate in the RCI can receive a total of $325 per resident (broken down as follows) to meet best practice expectations:
Total annual compensation cannot exceed the $45,000.00 annual limit per physician, as stipulated by GPSC. Once a physician has opted-in to the RCI program, progress toward meeting best practice expectations at each facility is required. This funding model will be reviewed by all physicians participating in the RCI program, and adjusted as needed to support excellent care.
Payments are made on a quarterly basis, with most participating physicians receiving payment by direct deposit. A quarterly statement detailing patient numbers as provided by each facility, is also provided by email. Review full RCI payment information in the RCI Questions & Answers.
