Total Cost of Care reflects a mix of complicated factors such as patient illness burden, service utilization and negotiated prices.
Total Cost Index (TCI) is a measure of a primary care provider's risk adjusted cost effectiveness at managing the population they care for. TCI includes all costs associated with treating members including professional, facility inpatient and outpatient, pharmacy, lab, radiology, ancillary and behavioral health services.
A Total Cost of Care Index when viewed together with a Resource Use measure provides a more complete picture of population based drivers of health care costs.
