ABSTRACT
The article examines the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) which hopes to improve the quality of primary care through a partnership with private insurers and states. The initiative aims to provide selected physicians with an average of 20 U.S. dollars per patient each month as an incentive to improve patient care. It explains why insurers and primary-care providers are taking a cautious approach to the initiative.
