Reminder – Physician Performance Insight (PPI) Reports are Coming Soon! 


PPI reports are planned to be available on August 21, 2023, for physicians having information at or above credibility thresholds in a category for the Physician Efficiency, Appropriateness, and QualitySM (PEAQSM) program. These reports show how physicians compare to peers and include information to improve future performance. 

How Does This Impact a Provider?

Provider Finder® searches are influenced by PEAQ scoring. Better performers show up higher in results, though no scoring is currently visible to users. Members who utilize Provider Finder to get care from high performers may be eligible for Member Rewards.


In accordance with Texas law, physicians may request more details about their PPI results or ask for a reconsideration of their results. Requests for reconsideration must be submitted to or a provider network consultant within 45 days of report delivery.

The PPI reports can be reviewed at no cost via Availity® beginning August 21, 2023 for qualified providers in the following specialties:



Primary Care








Cardiothoracic Surgery


Orthopedic Surgery


Vascular Surgery

Family Medicine

Internal Medicine
