COMPREHENSIVE PRIMARY CARE PLUS
Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) is a national advanced primary care medical home model that aims to strengthen primary care through regionally-based multi-payer payment reform and care delivery transformation. CPC+ includes two primary care practice tracks with incrementally advanced care delivery requirements and payment options to meet the diverse needs of primary care practices in the United States (U.S.). There are 2,891 primary care practices participating in Comprehensive Primary Care Plus.
Through a unique public-private partnership with 54 aligned payers in 14 regions (PDF), the CPC+ payment redesign gives practices the additional financial resources and flexibility they need to make investments that will improve quality of care and reduce the number of unnecessary services their patients receive. CPC+ provides practices with a robust learning system, as well as actionable data feedback, to guide their decision making. The care delivery redesign ensures practices in each track have the infrastructure to deliver better care to result in a healthier patient population.
CPC+ is a five-year model: Round 1 will begin in January 2017 and Round 2 will begin in January 2018.
Beginning in January 2017, CPC+ supports 2,891 primary care practices, comprising 13,090 clinicians and serving more than 1.76 million Medicare beneficiaries. Practices of all sizes and structures are located in each of the 14 CPC+ regions: Arkansas, Colorado, Hawaii, Greater Kansas City Region of Kansas and Missouri, Michigan, Montana, North Hudson-Capital Region of New York, New Jersey, Ohio and Northern Kentucky Region, Oklahoma, Oregon, Greater Philadelphia Region of Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Tennessee.
CPC+ seeks to improve the quality of care patients receive, improve patients’ health, and spend health care dollars more wisely. Practices in both tracks will make changes in the way they deliver care, centered on key Comprehensive Primary Care Functions: (1) Access and Continuity; (2) Care Management; (3) Comprehensiveness and Coordination; (4) Patient and Caregiver Engagement; and (5) Planned Care and Population Health.
