New Federal Direct-Contracting VBP Models Met With Concern
While some have responded well to new federal direct-contracting value-based payment models with excitement, others believe there are serious flaws in them.
By: Adam Sahhar
January 6, 2021 – A Washington D.C.-based advocacy organization, the National Association of Accountable Care Organizations (NAACOS), had initial enthusiasm for the models die down as they sorted through the details and realized that legacy ACOs are hard-pressed to participate and find avenues for success.
Namely, the NAACOS notes the absence of emphasis on the actual providers under the new professional and global direct-contracting options. In addition, they find flaws in the weighting system that CMMI and CMS plan to use for historical expenses. Currently, these models favor organizations that are new to value-based care.
Despite concerns over direct-contracting, the NAACOS is excited to see more ACOs participating in in-home care.
