In April 2019, CMS announced the creation of Primary Care First, a voluntary program designed to pilot innovative approaches in primary care focused on quality measures and shared risk payment models. Across the nation, only 26 regions are part of the pilot districts. Two of these areas are in NY including the greater Buffalo region and Hudson Valley/Capital District region. Primary Care First builds upon CMS’s Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program.

In an effort to foster shared learning across our network of internists, NYACP is interested in hearing from members who are participating in CMS’s Primary Care First program. Please contact Heather Bennett at or 518-427-0366 if you are in a Primary Care First program. New payment models testing value-based payments are transforming the healthcare landscape in NY. Help NYACP learn from the ground-up by sharing your experiences with CMS’s new programs, and connect with colleagues managing similar programs in their practices.
