CPC+ Application Period

August 26, 2016

This month, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) opened the application period for practices to participate in the new primary care model, Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+), which is available to practices in Kansas and Missouri.  This model is an important opportunity to increase access and comprehensiveness of care to patients in rural communities. The CPC+ practice application period runs from August 1 – September 15, 2016.

CPC+ offers a unique chance for eligible primary care practices in 14 regions and states across the country to receive additional financial and technical support from Medicare and other payers.  Across these 14 regions, CMS’ goal is to have a large geographic spread and to ensure that rural practices are well represented in CPC+. In addition to the added support practices will receive from Medicare in CPC+, some may also be eligible for a 5% bonus payment for participating in an Advanced Alternative Payment Model through the proposed CMS Quality Payment Program.
