HealthcareDive reports that giant UnitedHealthcare paid more than $148 million last year to primary-care physicians for improving  the medical outcomes for patients in Medicare Advantage plans. The insurer said that nearly 1,900 physicians received bonuses for achieving value-based goals in its PATH program, which encourages physicians to promote prevention, including  monitoring of chronic conditions.

Physicians in the program care for about a million Medicare Advantage members.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services  is trying to shift 50 percent of Medicare payments to value-based payment models by 2018.
