CMMI Initiates its New Direction with RFI on Direct Provider Contracting

On April 23, 2018, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation released a request for information on Direct Provider Contracting, seeking additional details on a model or models that would allow the agency to contract directly with primary care providers or multi-specialty medical groups in traditional Medicare.  The RFI represents an opportunity for stakeholders to weigh in on the Innovation Center’s work to develop models that control costs and improve quality.
