Six Temple Practices to Partake In National Initiative
January 10, 2017  | 

Through CPC+, CMS pays primary care practices a care management fee to support enhanced coordinated services on behalf of Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries. Simultaneously, participating commercial, state and other federal insurance plans are also offering enhanced payment to primary care practices designed to support them in providing high-quality care on behalf of their members.

For patients this means improved access to physician practices through longer, more flexible hours; improved health care communication through electronic health records; and the provision of individualized, enhanced care for patients living with multiple diseases and chronic conditions. The emphasis is on high quality care enhanced by patient engagement, prevention and coordinated care management.

The five-year model took effect at the beginning of 2017. Public and private health plans in 14 regions across the country have signed letters of intent with CMS to participate in this model.
