MiPCT Post-Demonstration Funding and Sustainability Diane Marriott
What Does Sustainability Mean? To the Health Plan: Added value for their customers To the Practice: Maintaining and growing CM staffing, processes and roles To the PO: Payment reform for CM 43
CMS Complex Care Management Post-Demo Payment Proposal Good News! CMS Physician Fee Schedule included proposed codes for Complex Care Management quarterly payment beginning 1/1/2015. MiPCT submitted comments on this constructive development, focusing on: ▫Discouraging CMS from imposing patient financial responsibility for care management services ▫Recognizing alternative designations (e.g., PGIP PCMH) for medical home definition ▫Removing the requirement that the practice employ an advanced care nurse or PA (NP or PA) and streamlining requirements for electronic all-provider communication, annual patient consent, etc.
Payer Sustainability "As participating Michigan Primary Care Transformation Project (MiPCT) payers, we recognize the value of care management embedded in primary care practices. We applaud CMS' recent payment proposal to continue funding for complex care coordination after the December 31, 2014 ending period of the demonstration project. We support continuation of this model of care to produce improvements in patient experience, quality and the value of care. We look forward to working together with the partnership of the MiPCT, the plans and the health care providers in improving Michigan's primary care system."
