WellPoint (WLP) says it will make a major investment in primary care by increasing revenue opportunities for participating primary care physicians. Payments from the second-largest U.S. health insurer could boost what the doctors get for treating patients WLP covers by up to 50%, which it bets will pay off in the form of fewer emergency room visits and hospital stays.
