Dive Brief:

  • The CMS announced a new model that aims to strengthen and improve primary care, including by ensuring small and rural organizations are able to enter into value-based care arrangements.
  • The Making Care Primary Model will run for more than 10 years in eight states — in Colorado, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina and Washington.
  • Research shows primary care is key to improving health outcomes and lowering costs.

But, because many patients will see multiple specialists, coordinating care can be challenging.
