ABSTRACT

Since 2012, the CMS Innovation Center promoted primary care transformation through the testing of Medicare models that enhance practice care delivery, data, learning, and financial resources. As CMS moves to begin testing the Primary Care First model in 2020, it is important to reflect on what we have learned to date and how that has informed the Innovation Center’s future test for primary care. PCMH-aligned care delivery strategies are important foundations for preparing to move away from volume-based care and take on downside risk in a value-based system. Based on the Innovation Center’s experience with different primary care models to date, it is possible envision a future glide path for willing primary care practices to assume risk and practice value-based care in Medicare over time.
