CMS Seeking Input

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is seeking input from your organization and members. On April 23, CMS announced a request for information (RFI) on Direct Provider Contracting (DPC) models. The RFI is seeking input from stakeholders on a range of questions and is intended to provide CMS information needed to potentially design and release a model in this area.

A direct provider contracting model would allow providers to take further accountability for the cost and quality of a designated population in order to drive better beneficiary outcomes. Such a model would also have the potential to enhance the doctor-patient relationship by providing a platform for physician group practices to provide flexible, accessible, and high-quality care to patients who have actively chosen this type of care, while reducing administrative burdens for clinicians.

We are seeking input on questions related to certain design features of a potential model, such as:

  • Provider/State participation
  • Beneficiary participation
  • Payment
  • General model design
  • Program integrity and beneficiary protections
  • Existing CMS initiatives

 

More information about the Direct Provider Contracting RFI is available here. Please share this with interested stakeholders and submit your comments and questions about this RFI via e-mail to DPC@cms.hhs.gov.  Comments are due by 11:59pm ET on May 25, 2018.
