Washington, DC – This statement may be attributed to Susan Dentzer, President and Chief Executive Officer of America’s Physician Groups (APG):
“APG applauds the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) for making important changes to the ACO REACH Model. APG advocated for many of these changes based on the recommendations of our ACO REACH coalition members, and we appreciate the fact that the Innovation Center was so responsive to our members’ perspectives and input. We look forward to working with CMS on additional refinements to the ACO REACH Model that will further improve the health care of Medicare patients and the model’s financial and operational sustainability.”
