ChenMed Encourages Increased Support for Value-Based Care and Medicare Advantage in Letter to CMS
On December 14, ChenMed and six other provider and medical groups – Aledade, the American Academy of Family Physicians, CAPG, Iora Health, Medical Group Management Association, and Texas Medical Association – sent a joint letter to CMS Administrator Seema Verma. In it, we highlighted the effectiveness of value-based care arrangements that reward physicians who keep patients healthier.
We hope CMS further explores innovative health care models as it prioritizes approaches like Medicare Advantage that are delivering better outcomes for patients and lowering overall costs for the entire health care system. ChenMed fully supports increasing patient choice and removing barriers that limit Medicare Advantage competition. We’re eager to work with CMS and Administrator Verma to achieve our common goals of increasing value and quality across the health care system to improve the lives of more patients.
