HCTTF Shares Recommendations with CMS on APM Synchronization

The Task Force has continued work to develop actionable, market-based strategies for better alignment between ACOs and bundled payment programs. This letter details our findings from this process and present recommendations for CMS to consider where model modifications and guidance would afford providers the appropriate flexibility to better coordinate patient care and with improved financial viability. We remain confident that clinical episode-related payments in coordination with population-based payment models can promote high-quality, high-value care for Medicare beneficiaries.
