On April 11, 2016, CMS announced a new Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPCP or CPC+) program that will provide risk-based supplements to primary care practices, as low as $6 per month for healthy patients and up to $100 per month for the most complex patients. This range of $72 to $1200 per year compares to advertisements I get at home in Los Angeles to move my care to a concierge internal medicine practice for $149 ("first year intro rate").
The program was rolled out with several CMS announcements, a CMS web portal, and paired to a feature online article at JAMA and one at NEJM.

New term for me this week: CMS/CMMI has a "Seamless Care Models Group" or SCMG.
