Bookmark and Share

CAPITATION, generally, is a tax or payment levied on the basis of a fixed amount per person. In medical insurance, it is a method of paying for healthcare services on the basis of the number of patients who are covered for specific services over a specified period of time rather than the cost or number of services that are actually provided.
