Letter to Senate Finance Chronic Care Working Group

“Our comments are based on the considerable body of work produced through BPC’s Health Project, Health Innovation Initiative, and Prevention Initiative, including:

“In general, we believe the transition away from fee-for-service to more coordinated systems of care will benefit beneficiaries across the Medicare program, and particularly those living with complex, chronic conditions. With better payment incentives in place, APM providers are offering new services such as care coordination and patient education and are often focusing these interventions on those with multiple-chronic conditions and other identified risk factors to achieve quality and patient satisfaction targets and generate savings for beneficiaries and the Medicare program.”
