Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) Round 2 Region Announcement

Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) Round 2 Region Announcement

Strengthening primary care is critical to promoting high quality, patient-centered care, and reducing overall health care costs in the U.S. The Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) model is an advanced primary care medical home model that rewards value and quality by offering an innovative payment structure to support primary care practices to improve quality, access, and efficiency. The model offers two tracks with different care delivery requirements and payment methodologies to meet the diverse needs of primary care practices.

In 2017, CPC+ Round 1 began in 14 regions, with 53 payers and 2,891 practices. CMS is offering a second round of solicitations for payers to partner with CMS and practices to participate in CPC+ from 2018 to 2022. Following payer applications and selections, the following four regions were selected for CPC+ Round 2:

1. Louisiana: Statewide
2. Nebraska: Statewide
3. North Dakota: Statewide
4. New York: Greater Buffalo Region (Erie and Niagara Counties)

Eligible practices located in these regions may apply to participate in CPC+ Round 2 from May 18, 2017 to July 13, 2017.

CPC+ Round 2 regions were selected based on payer alignment and market density to ensure that CPC+ practices have sufficient payer supports to make fundamental changes in their primary care delivery. CMS has provisionally selected to partner with seven payers in these regions throughout Round 2 of the model. In addition, CMS has provisionally selected five payer partners to provide additional support in certain existing Round 1 regions.
