LOS ANGELES, Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RadNet, Inc. (NASDAQ: RDNT), a national leader in providing high-quality, cost-effective, fixed-site outpatient diagnostic imaging services today reported its newly formed affiliate, Lenox Hill IPA LLC, has entered into a capitation arrangement with EmblemHealth to provide diagnostic imaging services to certain of EmblemHealth’s enrollees under its AdvantageCare Physicians medical group.
This is the first full-risk capitation contract RadNet has signed on the East Coast.

We have been in discussions to bring risk-based contracting to the East Coast for some time. For over two decades, RadNet has enjoyed similar capitated relationships with dozens of large medical groups on the West Coast, and we are excited about our newly formed relationship with EmblemHealth. We continue to believe that performance-based and value-driven healthcare are necessary for our healthcare delivery system to become more cost-effective and ubiquitous. EmblemHealth brings that focus to all of its care delivery efforts.”
