Task Force provides comments to CMS regarding EPM Interim Final Rule

The Task Force has submitted comments to CMS on the interim final rule with comment that delayed the start date for the AMI, CABG, SHFFT, and CR incentive payment models from July 1, 2017 until October 1, 2017.  CMS sought comment on further delaying the EPM start date until January 1, 2018. The Task Force advocated for flexibility for providers that would prefer an earlier start date if the decision is made to delay to 2018, and reiterated themes from our comment letter on the initial NPRM.
