A moderator and judge will facilitate the debate and raise pre-determined questions for our candidates that will touch on the key features of each of the payment models, an assessment of their strengths and weaknesses, and some insight into what works and what doesn’t for older adults with multiple and complex conditions. Audience members may ask questions and/or comment during a designated period following conclusion of the debate. Learning Objectives: (1) describe the advantages and shortcomings of Fee-for-Service (FFS) for primary care; (2) describe the advantages and shortcomings of capitation for primary care; and (3) outline the impact of the financial models discussed.
