Physician-Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee seeks public input on review process

On July 24, 2018, the Physician-Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC) issued a request for public comments on its process for the submission and review of proposed innovative health care delivery and finance models.

Comments are due to PTAC by September 7, 2018.

PTAC is a panel of experts convened by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). PTAC’s responsibility is to evaluate proposals submitted by the public for consideration as new payment models under the MACRA Quality Payment Program’s Advanced Alternative Payment Models.

In the request for public comments, PTAC seeks input on:

  • The process for providing initial feedback to individuals and stakeholder entities who submit proposals for physician-focused payment models (PFPMs) (authorized as part of the February 2018 Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018);
  • Previously established requirements for submission of proposals; and
  • The processes PTAC has employed for reviewing and making recommendations on those proposals.

PTAC’s current requirements for submission of proposals are found on the PTAC website.
