Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture the volume of products/services distributed where the recipient made no payment but for which the organization received (or expects to receive) payment or reimbursement by a third party (for example, an insurance company).
  • For example, a medical office that provides annual physicals where the patient has no co-pay but an insurance company pays a fee on the patient's behalf would capture that service under the metric Units/Volume Sold: No Direct Payment.
  • Organizations selling different types of products/services should consider reporting against each type of different product/service separately.
