Comments on CMS Proposed Rule: Medicare and Medicaid Programs: Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly

October 17, 2016

Today, the National MLTSS Health Plan Association submitted comments to CMS regarding proposed rule CMS-4168-P, which would revise and update the requirements for the PACE program under Medicare and Medicaid.  The Association supports CMS’s efforts to improve upon and refine the success of the PACE program. However, the Association also wishes to raise several concerns with the proposed rule and to caution that, by modifying the PACE model, CMS risks diminishing the highly-integrated, provider-centered care delivery features that have been integral to its success and warranted its unique payment and regulatory framework.
