Accelerating and Aligning Primary Care Payment Models White Paper

This white paper offers principles, recommendations, and immediate action steps for implementing primary care payment models (PCPMs). It is designed to help stakeholders overcome barriers to effective primary care tied to traditional fee-for-service payments based on the volume of services provided rather than the quality and value of care. At its core is the view that primary care teams are uniquely positioned to serve as catalysts for innovative care as well as effective stewards of healthcare resources.
