Responding to the Primary Care Payment Congressional RFI

Senators Whitehouse and Cassidy introduced S. 4338, the Pay PCPs Act. The Pay PCPs Act would encourage the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to accelerate its existing efforts to support value-based primary care and improve the adequacy of pay for primary care providers in Medicare. This legislation serves as a marker for future primary care legislation and includes a request for information on hybrid payments for primary care providers, risk adjustment criteria, quality measures and services to be included in hybrid models, cost sharing and technical advisory committees. Please send any feedback on the RFI questions to by June 28.
