What is PCF?
The Primary Care First (PCF) Model was created by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to reward value and quality by offering innovative payment structures to support delivery of advanced primary care. The Model is based on the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus Model and aims to reward participants for improved health outcomes, strengthen the doctor-patient relationship, reduce administrative burdens, and enhance care for patients with complex conditions. CMS is working with other payers to align payment, quality, and data sharing requirements to support the Model.
Collaborative Health Systems (CHS) has assisted partner providers in exploring participation options and applying for the PCF Model.
