The groups on Wednesday will sign the voluntary agreement, which was brokered by two state lawmakers.
The agreement focuses on the use of patient-centered medical homes, which have been shown to provide better-coordinated and more efficient care for patients with a lot of needs.

The senators say Wightman’s bill prompted a year-long effort to set up rules between physicians and insurers.
