CMS Announces Delays and Extensions for Pay for Performance Value-Based Programs
On June 2, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) announced timeline changes for several CMS Innovation Center Models in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, extending some models while delaying the start of others. The changes, first announced in a blog post authored by CMS leadership, are outlined in a flexibilities table made available by CMS. We have prepared a table below providing a brief description of each model and indicating the timeline changes. Links to related Ropes & Gray alerts are provided as well for additional information. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact one of the authors or your usual Ropes & Gray advisor.
