PCC Comment Letter: Protect CMMI’S Ability to Advance Value-Based Models

In March, PCC issued a comment letter to Congress that expresses opposition to H.R. 5741 and calls to protect CMMI’s ability to advance value-based payment models for beneficiaries. While the “Strengthening Innovation in Medicare & Medicaid Act” was framed as a way to increase accountability for the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), PCC is concerned that the legislation will impede the Innovation Center’s ability to agilely test and scale payment models. The letter asserts that the bill weakens CMMI's autonomy, introduces opportunities to politicize payment models, and adds unnecessary administrative burden.
