What to Make of CMS' New "Making Care Primary" Model
A New Interactive Webinar
Wednesday, August 2 — 10:00-11:25 AM Pacific time

MODESTO, CA USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE -- JULY 19, 2023: In June, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced it was launching a decade-long project to test a revamped primary care model in eight states. The model, called Making Care Primary (MCP), will focus on strengthening care for patients suffering from chronic illnesses and behavioral health issues, as well as those who live in isolated rural areas. It also intends to flatten disparities in care.

The MCP model will include additional payments to participants, including prospective payments for primary care delivery that will reduce organizations' reliance on fee-for-service payments. There will also be prospective risk-adjusted enhanced services payments intended to expand care management initiatives and better integrate primary care delivery with specialty services. And for the first time in such a model, federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) will participate.

Please join us on Wednesday, August 2nd as Katherine Hempstead of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Robert Saunders of the Margolis Center for Health Policy at Duke University, and Ronald Vance of Alvarez and Marsal, discuss how payers and providers might stand to benefit from the MCP model, and what concerns might need to be addressed. The speakers will discuss:

  • The new CMS model leveraging primary care to improve outcomes — what is it?
  • Outlining CMS' goals for the model
  • How providers will adopt to the new model — and how they can benefit
  • How payers will adopt to the new model — and how they can benefit

You'll also be able to ask the speakers your situation-specific questions, and hear their solutions for your challenges PLUS those of your colleagues. And because this is a webinar, there is no limit to the number of people you can invite to join you at your workplace.
