Specialty Care Incentives
Specialty Care Incentive (SCI) payments are made to contracted specialists based on the services performed for Alliance Medi-Cal members during the 2016 calendar year. Measurement for this incentive program is determined by claims data.
Only services provided by physicians or non-physician medical practitioners are eligible, and certain services, such as interpretation or reading of tests, are excluded. Initial visits are weighted higher to encourage the acceptance of new members.
To participate in the SCI program, a provider must have its contract amended by the Alliance to add the SCI addendum.
To participate in the SCI program or find additional information please see Section 18 of the Alliance Provider Manual or contact your Provider Services Representative at (800) 700-3874 ext. 5504.
