According to Fierce Healthcare:

“If there was any doubt about the Trump administration’s desire to push healthcare towards a value-based system, Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) Director Adam Boehler wiped it away on Thursday morning.

‘I’ll tell you a lot of what I do in my role running CMMI as senior adviser to Secretary Azar is to blow up fee for service,’ he said during a fireside chat at the Office of the National Coordinator’s annual conference. ‘That’s one of our prime goals—is to get rid of fee for service.’”

ANCOR’s Alternative Payment Model Group is in the process of finalizing a report on value-based payments in our field – if you are interested in learning more, please contact Esme Grant Grewal at [email protected].
