The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center recently announced the CMS Primary Cares Initiative, a new set of payment models that will transform primary care to deliver better value for patients throughout the healthcare system. The CMS Primary Cares Initiative will provide primary care practices and other providers with five new payment model options, three of which are under the Direct Contracting (DC) path.
Direct Contracting is a set of three voluntary payment model options aimed at reducing expenditures and preserving or enhancing quality of care for beneficiaries in Medicare fee-for-service (FFS). The payment model options available under DC create opportunities for a broad range of organizations to participate with the CMS in testing the next evolution of risk-sharing arrangements to produce value and high quality health care.
Please attend one of our upcoming informational sessions to learn more about Direct Contracting. During the one-hour event, you’ll hear from senior leaders and the team behind Direct Contracting about the model’s aims and requirements, benefits of participation, and application process.
For your convenience, we will offer two informational sessions that will include a live question and answer session. Both will be recorded. Session information and registration links are included below:
Informational Session 1: Thursday, May 2nd at 3 PM EDT

Informational Session 2: Tuesday, May 7th at 3 PM EDT

Feel free to forward this invitation to colleagues who may be interested in learning more about Direct Contracting. For additional information about Direct Contracting, please visit the Direct Contracting Model Options web page.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center recently announced the CMS Primary Cares Initiative, a new set of payment models that will transform primary care to deliver better value for patients throughout the healthcare system. The CMS Primary Cares Initiative will provide primary care practices and other providers with five new payment model options, two of which are under the Primary Care First path.
The Primary Care First payment model options will test whether financial risk and performance-based payments that reward primary care practitioners and other clinicians for easily-understood, actionable outcomes will reduce total Medicare expenditures, preserve, or enhance quality of care, and improve patient health outcomes. Primary Care First also includes a payment model option that provides higher payments to practices that specialize in care for high need patients, including those with complex, chronic needs and seriously ill populations (SIP).
Please attend one of our upcoming informational sessions to learn more about Primary Care First. During the one-hour event, you’ll hear from senior leaders and the team behind Primary Care First about the model aims, requirements, benefits of participation, and application next steps.
