Comprehensive Primary Care +

MT DPHHS CPC+

MT DPHHS is proud to announce our commitment and participation in the new nation-wide primary care model, Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+). CPC+ is a multi-payer, public-private, collaborative model, in coordination with CMS and Medicare, among other private insurers in the state. Through CPC+, payers and practices will aim in strengthening primary care to achieve better care, smart spending, and healthier people.

Practices now have the opportunity to apply to participate in CPC+.  The initiative offers increased flexibility for practices while offering increased incentives from all payers for quality of care over volume.

We suggest and encourage all of our valued primary care practices will apply as soon as possible for this exciting initiative.

Why should practices apply?

Practices should apply if they:

  • Want the freedom to care for patients the way they think is best and would like to work on an innovative care delivery model.
  • Would like resources and flexibility to innovate and deliver high quality patient-centered care that goes beyond the traditional visit-based structure and fee-for-service reimbursements.
  • Want to receive substantial incentive payments for meeting certain quality milestones.

There is no downside to applying – your application doesn’t obligate you to participate, is not legally binding, and you can always opt-out later. However, this is the only time to apply.

When should practices apply?

Today! Practices must apply by September 15, 2016, to be a part of the 5-year project. At any time, practices may choose to drop out of the initiative with 90 days’ notice. Unfortunately, FQHC’s, RHC’s, pediatric clinics, and IHS are not eligible to participate in this program.
