As primary care practices recover from losses in volume and revenue, Primary Care First (PCF) — a CMS alternative payment model — may offer a positive path forward. Round 2 of PCF will open to all primary care practices in 26 geographic regions in 2022. This option gives you an opportunity to increase revenue, all with less administrative burden and more flexibility to drive patient care than other value-based plans. It also provides enhanced access to actionable, timely data to help improve care management.
But is it a good fit for your practice? Join this webinar to learn about PCF, whether you qualify and how it can result in performance-based adjustments of up to 50% of revenue based on a single outcome measure. Acclivity Health gained considerable experience helping providers prepare for the PCF plan in 2021. They'll share their knowledge so you can evaluate the program and make an informed decision about participation.
Applications are now open for CMS' Primary Care First model with a deadline of April 30. Don't miss this opportunity to maximize reimbursements and earn bonuses from this value-based care program.
This 60-minute webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:
- Examine how PCF improves patient access to advanced primary care
- Breakdown the two major components of PCF payment options for maximizing additional reimbursements and bonus payments
- Outline what new resources your practice may need to make the program most profitable
