PTAC Update: March 16 Meeting Registration Open and Additional Preliminary Reports Posted

Public Meeting

The Physician-Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC) posted the agenda and opened registration for the March 16 public meeting. During this meeting, the Committee will consider and vote on three previously submitted proposals.

Preliminary Review Team Reports

In preparation for the March 2020 meeting, PTAC posted preliminary review team reports for the following proposed physical payment models:

PTAC is scheduled to deliberate and vote on whether the above proposals will be recommended to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for testing. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 established PTAC to provide recommendations to the HHS Secretary on physician payment models. The statute requires the Secretary to review PTAC’s comments and recommendations on proposals and to post a detailed response to those comments and recommendations on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services website. There is no required timeline for the Secretary’s response to PTAC’s comments and recommendations.

Additional information is available on the PTAC website and the McDermottPlus PTAC tracker is available here.
