Here Are The Challenges Providers Can Expect With CPC+

On Aug. 1, CMS announced 14 regions selected for a five-year medical home model, Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+). The aim is to give doctors the freedom to decide what types of care will deliver the best outcomes for their patients and then reward them for achieving those results.

CMS unveiled the CPC+ initiative in April, billing it as the “largest-ever” push to transform the way primary care is delivered and paid for in the U.S. The focus is on preventive patient-centered care and is part of the agency’s broader thrust toward rewarding quality over quantity. Last year, CMS set a goal of achieving 50% of traditional Medicare reimbursements through alternative payment models by 2018. Currently, 30% of such payments meet that goal.
