Definition

Per capita payment is a payment method by which physicians are paid per patient treated . This payment method aims to assure time efficient treatment of each patient and creates incentives for physicians to treat as many patients as possible. This payment method contrasts with the fee-for-service payment where payment depends on the number of services provided.
