Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC)Webinar, July 16th: Everything You Wanted to Know to Apply to the CPC Initiative

The Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative is a multi-payer program created by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to foster collaboration with payers to strengthen primary care. Medicare has worked with several commercial and state health insurance plans to develop bonus payments to primary care doctors who better coordinate the care of their patients. The Capital District and Hudson Valley Regions of New York were selected as focus regions at this time. Primary care practices in Albany, Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rensselaer, Rockland, Schenectady, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester counties are invited to apply to participate in this initiative. 75 practices will be selected.

Selected practices will receive a $20 (average) per-beneficiary per-month care management fee on behalf of aligned Medicare beneficiaries who receive care in selected practices, as well as an opportunity to earn shared savings; aligned private payers are each offering their own monthly support payments and an opportunity to earn shared savings to practices in their networks.

CMS is hosting a webinar that will provide information about the program:
