Hot Topic: CMS' Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) Initiative

Hot Topic: CMS' Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) Initiative

The CMS Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) has spent the last 6 years testing out a variety of models for value-based care and payment--the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and other ACO models, the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) Initiative, the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Model, and various Medicaid and CHIP initiatives. As the Administration doubles down on its commitment to shift payments away from fee-for-service (FFS), it continues to innovate, building programs to align incentives to person-centered, comprehensive, high quality health care. In that vein, in July of this year, CMS will begin taking applications from practices for participation in a new CMMI program: the CPC+ program.
