Beaverton, Oregon – May 27, 2016 – The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced today the opportunity for up to 1,500 eligible primary care practices currently in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) to also participate in Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+), the largest-ever initiative to transform and improve how primary care is delivered and paid for in America.

Citing stakeholders’ input on this issue, the CMS announcement underscores how dual participation in CPC+ and an MSSP Accountable Care Organization (ACO) may enhance the coordination of care for Medicare beneficiaries and help to achieve stated aims of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people.

Lynn Barr, CEO of Caravan Health, reacted to the announcement positively, saying, “CPC+ provides significant funding for primary care practices to deliver care the way they and their patients think is best. Dual participation in these programs will provide the best possible outcomes for both patients and providers.”

Ms. Barr will present a one-hour webinar and overview of the CPC+ initiative and the Caravan Health CPC+ program, the most simple and effective way for primary care physicians, practices and now ACOs to participate profitably in the CPC+ initiative.

The webinar will be held Thursday, June 2nd at 9am PT / 11am CT / 12pm ET. To participate in the webinar, log in to and enter participant code 5004771 when prompted. An audio-only option is available by dialing 303.248.0285 and entering 5004771* at the prompt.

Caravan Health is a national leader in the optimization of healthcare services and programs for independent practices and primary care physicians ready to make the transformation to value-based payment models.
