abstract

  • The cost of this 5.6-month care coordination intervention was less than $800 including overhead or less than $95 per month. A 3-phase payment model is proposed and requires further evaluation for implementation feasibility. Project INSPIRE's HCV care coordination program provides good value for a cost of less than $95 per participant per month. The payment model provides an incentive for successful cure of hepatitis C with a bonus payment; using the bonus payment to support HCV tele-mentoring expands HCV treatment capacity and empowers more primary care providers to treat their own patients with HCV.
