Oregon has applied to be one of 20 states/regions chosen by CMS for CPC+. This 5 year program will build off the success of CPC. If we are chosen (we will know Aug. 1), you will be hearing lots of information about the program, why your clinic should apply and how to apply.
This program is what we have been asking for – a public/private partnership that allows for coordination and alignment in payment methods and quality measures.
