Major health systems in the Kansas City market are investing in capital projects, but few are focused on payment reform. Physicians affiliated with smaller hospitals in the market have joined with independent groups to form a new clinically integrated network, Centrus Health. The CIN is introducing new value-based arrangements, including an ACO with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City. Largest insurer Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City has also jumped into the provider space by opening its own clinics for its plan members. This new innovation only adds to the Blue plan’s market dominance, giving it more control over care delivery and network referrals.
