Eligible practices in Louisiana, Nebraska, North Dakota and the Buffalo, NY, region may apply through July 13 to participate in the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus model from 2018 to 2022, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced today. The multi-payer medical home model, which commenced in 14 regions this year, offers two tracks with different care delivery requirements and payment methodologies. Both tracks qualify as Advanced Alternative Payment Models under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act’s new payment system for clinicians. CMS expects to select up to 1,000 practices to participate in Round 2.
