Better Medicate Alliance Letter to Acting Administrator Slavitt on Merit-Based Incentives and Alternative Payment Models

The Better Medicare Alliance (BMA) appreciates the opportunity to provide comment to the Request for Information Regarding Implementation of the Merit-­‐Based Incentive Payment System, Promotion of Alternative Payment Models, and Incentive Payments for Participation in Eligible Alternative Payment Models. The focus of our comments today relate to the value of Medicare Advantage (MA) as important to achieving the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) goal of moving providers towards Alternative Payment Models (APMs).
