Apply by Sept. 15 to Participate in CPC+ Pilot

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Priority Health have been accepted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus Program (CPC+), a five-year model beginning January 2017. CPC+ is the largest-ever multi-payer initiative to improve the quality of care patients receive, improve patients' health and spend health care dollars more wisely.

CPC+ is a national advanced primary care medical home model that aims to strengthen primary car through payment reform and care delivery transformation. CPC+ brings together CMS, commercial insurance plans and state Medicaid agencies to provide the financial support necessary for practices to make fundamental changes in their care delivery.

PCPs interested in participating must apply by September 15; CPC+ will provide learning system and data feedback

Primary care practices can apply for one of two tracks - one to build capabilities and one with incrementally advanced care delivery requirements and reimbursement. The application process is only open for 45 days.

  • Track 1: Pathway for practices ready to build the capabilities to deliver comprehensive primary care.
  • Track 2: Pathway for practices poised to increase the comprehensiveness of care through enhanced Health IT, improve care of patients with complex needs, and inventory of resources and support to meet patients' psychosocial needs.
