The University of Maryland Quality Care Network (UM QCN) invites payer organizations to engage in new value-based payment structures that enable innovative and enhanced care delivery models.

In partnership with the UM QCN, payers will benefit from:

  • A high-quality and high-performing regional provider network that offers care coordination and management services attractive to current and prospective members.
  • The ability to delegate performance risk with terms that improve certainty of financial outcomes for the health plan.
  • The capacity to competitively reduce growth in health care cost rates and premiums.
  • The opportunity to utilize new health plan products that garner new membership and increase margin growth for the health plan.
