- The Comprehensive Primary Care initiative’s second program year saw stable participation among payers and practices, as well as notable progress in the initiative’s implementation.
- Results from the first two years of CPC show strongest improvement in care management for high-risk patients and in access to care.
- Estimated reductions in Medicare expenditures resulting from the CPC initiative were not enough to offset the higher fees that Medicare provided to participating practices.
