• Clinical Performance Improvement Initiative

    In its twelfth year, the GIC’s Clinical Performance Improvement (CPI) Initiative improves provider transparency, quality, and efficient use of resources. The program aggregates over 150 million de-identified book of business claims from the six GIC health plan carriers to make quality and efficiency comparisons among physicians. The GIC and our health plans use these results to tier providers. Members pay the lowest copay for the highest performing quality and/or cost efficient doctors.
