Shared by Radhika Narayanan | 15 162 2 | about 2 years ago

CMS has announced a new expanded initiative for bringing value-based repayment to primary care. The Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program, builds on the Comprehensive Primary Care program introduced in 2012, but will expand the program to a larger number of practices and includes some tweaks to the model.

“Strengthening primary care is critical to an effective health care system,” said Dr. Patrick Conway, CMS deputy administrator and chief medical officer. “By supporting primary care doctors and clinicians to spend time with patients, serve patients’ needs outside of the office visit, and better coordinate care with specialists we can continue to build a health care system that results in healthier people and smarter spending of our health care dollars. The Comprehensive Primary Care Plus model represents the future of health care that we’re striving towards.”
