But online specialty medical clinic Virta Health is daring to go where few providers have gone before, announcing plans to embark on an ambitious 100%-downside-risk model. Under their new model, “every dollar is earned by meeting performance benchmarks, and the majority of payment is tied to health outcomes,” the company said in an announcement on Wednesday.
