PCC Opposes H.R. 5741; Calls to Protect CMMI’s Ability to Advance Value-Based Models for Medicare Beneficiaries

On March 6, 2020, PCC submitted a letter to members of Congress to express opposition to HR 5741 "Strengthening Innovation in Medicare and Medicaid Act." This proposed legislation risks weakening CMMI's leadership role and autonomy. HR 5741 has the potential to politicize CMMI models with the introduction of congressional approval. It would also restrict model parameters and create unneccessary administrative burden that would effectively hinder CMMI's ability to flexibly deploy and adapt models to meet beneficiary needs.
