APG’s Susan Dentzer Discusses Value-Based Care Goals, Challenges Across Medicare

CMS’s Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation last year declared a goal of having all traditional Medicare enrollees in an accountable care arrangement by 2030. America’s Physician Groups (APG), which represents more than 300 physician groups that accept various degrees of risk with all payer types, including Medicare Advantage plans, wants CMS to apply that same goal to MA. In a recent comment letter on CMS’s request for information on the MA program, APG President and CEO Susan Dentzer urged the administration to incentivize the delegation of full risk to providers in MA.
