The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) offer Alternative Payment Models (APMs) intending to incentivize providers to maintain or improve quality outcomes for traditional Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiaries, while also reducing their healthcare costs.
The Temple Center for Population Health is participating in the Professional Direct Contracting Model. The goal of the DCE is to improve quality and health outcomes for Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiaries through alignment of incentives and an emphasis on beneficiary choice and care delivery while maintaining access to care for beneficiaries.
