The CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) is making a major gamble with health care — and not everyone is convinced it will pay off.
The agency has disclosed a new primary care model that would offer doctors more flexibility to decide just how their sufferers should get care, in accordance to a CMS statement.
The initiative would permit physicians to choose how they need to care for Medicare patients, a five-year initiative called the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus model. The agency based the model on lessons learned from its 2012 Comprehensive Primary Care initiative.
Not everyone is convinced it will work. Few discuss that there is no evidence it will secure any money at all or lead to better care. American Medical Association president Steven Stack called the new CMS model a step up from previous efforts, but added it is not quite clear whether physicians will get on board with alternative payment models, in accordance to a Diagnostic Imaging report.
