The deadline to submit an application for the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program is Thursday, September 15! Use this CMS checklist and step-by-step document to help your practice prepare its application.
CPC+ will allow up to 5,000 primary care practices in the 14 selected regions to participate in an innovative care delivery and payment redesign model. Selected practices will receive an average of $15-$28 per beneficiary per month for the care coordination of Medicare beneficiaries and as an advanced payment model within MACRA!
Participation in CPC+ will get patients more involved in their care and more satisfied in the care you provide.
“Our patients are much more involved in their care and they have demonstrated better satisfaction scores in the ratings of our care. A few have volunteered to advise the office that provides us with insights that help us make our care better,” said Mark Frazer, MD, a CPCi (CPC classic) participant.
“For you, the physician contemplating participation in CPC+, this is your opportunity to be a part of the new practice of medicine and shape the future. CPC+ harkens back to many of the ideals and principles that we learned in medical school and residency and it puts them into daily practice. It is a study and there is lots of room for innovation. Look at CPC+ as a learning experience which allows you a lot of latitude in solving patient care problems,” said Larry Ratcliff, MD, a CPCi (CPC classic) participant.
The American Academy of Family Physicians has collaborated with Caravan Health to provide you with free technical assistance and help with your CPC+ application. Contact Kristen Stine or call 800.274.2237 ext. 4161 to see if your practice qualifies!
