The PCC’s Better Health Now campaign launched an effort to bring hybrid primary care payment to Medicare’s largest ACO program. We met with federal officials and are pleased CMS leaders have signaled an intention to offer this option for Medicare ACOs to foster team-based care.


Highlighting Primary Care’s Role in ACOs and APMs
