Pay-for-performance (P4P) program

2024 P4P program details

The Aetna Better Health® of Illinois 2024 Pay-for-Performance (P4P) Program rewards providers for high-quality care given to our members. Financial incentives are based on completing services on several Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) measures.

Here’s how it works

Financial incentives are based on completing services on several Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) measures. Assigned PCPs and specialists are paid extra for closing these HEDIS® care gaps:


  • Adult access to primary care (AAP)
  • Blood pressure control (CBP)
  • Blood pressure control for diabetics (BPD)
  • Breast cancer screening (BCS)
  • Hemoglobin A1c<8 (HBD)
  • Follow up after emergency department visit for mental illness or substance abuse by any provider type (FUM and FUA)
  • Prenatal and postpartum care for members with live births from October 8, 2023, to October 7, 2024 (PPC)
  • Cervical cancer screening (CCS)
  • Adolescent immunizations (combo 2) (IMA)
  • Childhood immunizations by age 2 (combo 10) (CIS CO10)
  • Well-child visits 0-14 months (6 or more visits within first 15 months) and well-child visits 15-30 months (2+ visits) (W30)
  • Well-child visits ages 3-21 (WCV)
  • Follow-up after hospitalization for mental illness services rendered by licensed behavioral health providers (FUH)

Every Medicaid recipient is required to have an assigned PCP. The previous minimum program eligibility requirement to see 50% of member panel has been retired. In 2024, participating providers with a member panel of 100 or more are eligible. Incentive earnings now begin in each measure by reaching the 33rd percentile for gap closure performance.


For 2024, the measurement year is January 1, 2024, to December 31, 2024. We’ll share visit performance data with providers throughout the year.

Providers will receive financial incentives for completing services on several HEDIS® measures. For 2024, there are three tiers of payment:


  • Reaching the 33rd percentile
  • Reaching the 50th percentile
  • Reaching or exceeding the 75th percentile


Providers receive incentives for all gaps closed when the next performance tier is reached. Reconciliation occurs at the next payment cycle for any performance decline that may occur due to measure definitions.
