The Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) has selected 14 regions around the country to participate in the largest Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative in the America called CPC+.  Rhode Island Health plans (Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), United Health Care (UHC), Tufts and Medicaid Fee For Service (FFS)) applied to partner with CMS in this multi-payer initiative.  Health Plans are encouraging eligible primary care practices to apply for CPC+.  CPC+ will provide primary care practices with a one time, unique opportunity to obtain care management funding for the Medicare fee for service population.  This Medicare funding will be additionally augmented by participating RI health plan funding either through ACO agreements or the Care Transformation Collaborative of Rhode Island.  The following FAQ have been compiled to assist you in understanding this unique/one time opportunity. 

Note: Practice applications are due: September 15, 2016.
