Direct Contracting

CMS’ Direct Contracting program has the potential to upend the way care is delivered and paid for. Designed with 2 current model options in mind (with a third option to be detailed by CMS later), Direct Contracting focuses on empowering beneficiaries, reducing provider burden and accelerating risk assumption. Upcoming deadlines to be aware of are Tuesday, February 25, 2020 for Implementation Period applications, and Spring 2020 for Performance Year One applications.

Organizations that want to drive success in Direct Contracting will need to:

  • Understand readiness for advanced risk
  • Identify the pace of adoption of these models in the market
  • Actuarially assess available options to optimize performance
