Document Dental Contract Reform - Can a prototype practice over perform in capitation to compensate for under delivery of activity?

Prototype practices can over-deliver on capitated patient numbers to off-set any under-delivery in expected activity levels; the ‘modelling tool’ on our website can be used to project required capitation and activity levels.

Prototype practices are not limited in the extent which capitation can be used to compensate for under-delivery, unless your Commissioner has indicated otherwise. In the event that a prototype practice was thought to be under-treating patients, a commissioner still reserves the right to end the prototype contract arrangement for that practice.
