“CAPG applauds the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) decision to proceed with designing and implementing a Medicare Advantage alternative payment model (APM) under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) Quality Payment Program.
“In today’s final rule, CMS states that, beginning in 2018, it will develop a demonstration project to test the effects of expanding MACRA’s incentives for eligible clinicians to participate in Medicare Advantage APMs that qualify as advanced APMs.
“CAPG, along with a broad stakeholder coalition and Members of Congress across both sides of the aisle have called on the agency to find a way to count Medicare Advantage risk contracts as advanced APMs for MACRA purposes. Today the agency is announcing that it has found a way to do just that.
“We look forward to working with CMS to design and implement this demonstration in a timely fashion. We know that this decision will accelerate the movement from volume to value.”
