NEW CMS PRIMARY CARE INITIATIVES TO IMPROVE PATIENT OUTCOMES, DRIVE VALUE, AND REDUCE COSTS
Join us as Dr. Kent Locklear, Chief Medical Officer for Lightbeam Health Solutions, provides an Innovation Center briefing on five payment model options that fall under two new CMS primary care initiatives: Primary Care First and Direct Contracting.
The two payment model options under Primary Care First (PCF) include:
– PCF General
– PCF High Needs Populations
The three payment model options under Direct Contracting (DC) include:
– DC Global
– DC Professional
– DC Geographic
As primary care organizations move further into risk-based contracts, CMS is providing different avenues to focus on specific patient populations to reduce costs and improve quality outcomes.
The Primary Care First and Direct Contracting initiatives ultimately aims to improve the patient experience, reduce costs, and promote taking risk to achieve high rewards in the value-based care space.
