Wellmark's Collaboration on Quality® Primary Care Program recognizes participating primary care clinicians in Iowa and South Dakota who provide care in line with nationally recognized measures of care.
Program participants have agreed to share their performance information with members, employers, and other providers. This information is found in Wellmark’s online directory.
Clinicians who meet performance levels for program components are eligible for special recognition, including potential financial rewards.
Please note: Although these participants have met the program criteria, this does not imply any guarantee of positive outcome or endorsement by Wellmark. In addition, coverage for services provided by a clinician to satisfy program measures is determined by the terms of each member’s coverage manual or policy.
