A4H to Provide Feedback on the Model to Encourage Broader Adoption and Success

Washington, D.C., June 8, 2023 — The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) today released a new primary care initiative – the Making Care Primary (MCP) Model – designed to enhance access to high-quality, accountable health care across America. MCP prioritizes integrated, coordinated, person-centered, and accountable primary care to improve health outcomes. The initiative will also focus on rural areas and traditionally underserved communities. Accountable for Health (A4H) CEO Mara McDermott issued the following statement in support of the CMS release:

“The MCP model is an important, encouraging development to strengthen accountable care for millions of patients through their primary care networks. By shifting delivery of health care in America to accountable models that prioritize care management, coordination, and outcomes, we’ll enhance the system overall for generations to come. Accountable for Health members are excited to engage with this new model and provide feedback to help encourage its broader adoption and success.”
