Per Member Per Month (PMPM) refers to the monthly healthcare cost of the average member of a health plan. PMPM is a basic indicator for healthcare spending and forms the basis upon which payers pay providers.

As the industry turns its head toward value-based care and away from fee-for-service, PMPM becomes an even more relevant number in determining an appropriate per member price, as many of the new models are based on member numbers rather than visits.

PMPM was a healthcare industry trend in our 2022 March Healthcare Classic. Explore this year’s interactive bracket to see the most impactful healthcare trends face off.
