Remuneration

In the prototype arrangements, we’ve split the contract value between:

  • capitation – expected number of capitated patients at year end
  • activity – expected minimum level of activity

We’re testing two models of payment calculation under prototype arrangements. These are:

  • Blend A
  • Blend B

Each new practice is allocated a model when they join the programme.

Blend A

The capitation element of this blend will cover

  • Band 1 treatments
  • urgent and charge exempt treatments for capitated patients

The activity element will cover:

  • Band 2 treatments
  • Band 3 treatments
  • Urgent care, referrals and charge exempt treatments for non-capitated patients

Blend B

The capitation element of this blend will cover

  • Band 1 treatments
  • Band 2 treatments
  • urgent and charge exempt treatments for capitated patients

The activity element will cover:

  • Band 3 treatments
  • Urgent care, referrals and charge exempt treatments for non-capitated patients

Dental Quality and Outcomes Framework (DQOF)
