Download Publication (pdf)

October 2017

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) was created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to test innovative payment and delivery system models to maintain or improve quality in Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) while slowing the rate of growth in program costs. In late September 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released an informal request for information (RFI) outlining potential new payment models and requesting stakeholder comments on new model designs and guiding principles.

This presentation provides background on CMMI, and details on the CMS request for stakeholder feedback on payment options, including how to combine price sensitivity with a consumer-driven focus, and waivers that might be necessary to help health care providers innovate care delivery. The presentation concludes by highlighting possible opportunities for the Commission’s input.
