The Physician-Focused Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC) is accepting comments until August 1, 2017, on the Medicare Three-Year Value Based Payment Plan alternative payment model. This model will allow Medicare beneficiaries to choose innovative reimbursement plans that are either offered by physicians in the community or through a benefit carrier.
The letter of intent (LOI) is available here.
The proposal is available here.
Comments should be submitted to: PTAC@HHS.gov
Additionally, PTAC also posted an LOI on a model for primary care office payment which is available here.
Established by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), PTAC is tasked with providing comments and recommendations to CMS on physician payment models. The Committee includes 11 members who are nationally recognized for their expertise in physician-focused payment models and related delivery of care. More information on PTAC is available on their website.
