The Trump administration has been conducting a review of advanced payment models launched in Medicare earlier this year and found that while participation has increased steadily, there’s still plenty of work to be done to produce savings.
In fact, the agency has found that of more than 50 value-based care models studied, just five were producing savings, said Brad Smith, director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).
A number of models instead landed in “the break even range,” and some, including some of CMMI’s “bigger models” were operating at a loss, Smith said.
“I think there’s a lot of things we’ve learned going back through these 54 models or so that we’re going to leverage moving forward,” Smith said.
