Earlier this year CMMI released the application for their new Medicare Direct Contracting Geographic model. Recently, CMMI announced online that they are currently reviewing the model. In response to CMMI reviewing the model and the uncertainties around it, Wakely has developed this paper as a guide for entities interested in the program to consider as well as outstanding questions needing clarification from CMMI. If you are an entity interested in this new model, this paper can help you understand the considerations before you apply. Please feel free to reach out to a Wakely consultant if you have any questions.
