Launched by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, the Primary Care First Model is a set of voluntary five-year payment options that reward value and quality by offering an alternative payment structure to support the delivery of advanced primary care. The model will be offered in 26 regions with an anticipated 2020 start date. Primary Care First will focus on advanced primary care practices ready to assume financial risk in exchange for reduced administrative burdens and performance-based payments. Through a second track, Primary Care First also encourages advanced primary care practices, including providers whose clinicians are enrolled in Medicare who typically provide hospice or palliative care services, to take responsibility for high need, seriously ill beneficiaries who currently lack a primary care practitioner and/or effective care coordination.
