Beneficiary Inducements & Value-Based Arrangements

September 12, 2019

Health centers are increasingly held accountable for health outcomes under value-based arrangements with payors.  The use of patient incentives that promote healthy behaviors and preventive services, free transportation services that remove barriers to accessing care, and social supports that address underlying determinants of health may be important tools for health centers seeking to improve health care outcomes.

The federal Beneficiary Inducement Prohibition has long been an obstacle to providers implementing certain beneficial programs for patients.  Due to changes to the Beneficiary Inducement Prohibition, however, providers may now offer a broader range of patient incentives, transportation services, and other items of value to patients, and in some cases, to non-patients who have been assigned by a payor to a provider for primary care services.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
