Today, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a major initiative, called the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program, to support the advanced primary care medical home model of health care delivery. ACP believes that CPC+ offers the potential of greatly strengthening the ability of internists and other primary care clinicians, in thousands of practices nationwide, to deliver high value, high performing, effective, and accessible primary care to millions of their patients.
In particular, the College:
The Comprehensive Primary Care Plus program is based on the successes and lessons learned from the current Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative (CPCi), which has been limited to approximately 500 practices in seven market areas. ACP has urged CMS to expand the CPCi to practices nationwide. Today’s announcement means that as many as 5,000 practices nationwide may now become eligible under this new CPC+ program.
The success of the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus program will depend on Medicare and other payers providing physicians and their practices with the sustained financial support needed for them to meet the goal of providing comprehensive, high value, accessible, and patient-centered care, with realistic and achievable ways to assess each practices’ impact on patient care. The College is committed to working with CMS on the details of implementation to ensure that the program is truly able to meet such requirements of success.
The American College of Physicians is the largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest physician group in the United States. ACP members include 143,000 internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists, and medical students. Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness.
