The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is seeking private and public health insurers to participate in the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative, a multi-payer and provider accountable care program that will include reliance on health information technology.

CMS will pay a per-beneficiary-per-month care management payment for comprehensive primary care services provided to Medicare fee-for-services beneficiaries, as well as beneficiaries of participating Medicaid plans. Medicare also will enable participating practices to share in savings in years 2 through 4 of the four-year pilot program. Medicaid payer participants will not offer a shared savings component.
