HCTTF Joins Health Leaders Urging CMMI to Improve Transparency

The Heath Care Transformation Task Force has joined with other health care leaders to write to encourage the CMS Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center) to continue to improve transparency and stability in the development of payment models. While we appreciate steps the agency has taken, such as hosting stakeholder roundtable discussions to gather input, we ask that the Innovation Center move to a more public process for releasing and updating payment models.

The HCTTF and other organizations that signed this letter are committed to the move to alternative payment models (APMs), including those with an emphasis on performance-based risk. We are excited to continue to work with the Innovation Center to pursue new value-based payment models.
