February 14, 2022: MGMA and hundreds of healthcare organizations urge HHS to fix, not end, the Direct Contracting Model

Advocacy Letter - February 15, 2022

Medicare Payment Policies

February 14, 2022

The Honorable Xavier Becerra
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
200 Independence Avenue, S.W.
Washington, DC 20201

Re: Continuing the Direct Contracting Model

Dear Secretary Becerra:

The undersigned organizations write to urge you to not cancel the Global and Professional Direct Contracting Model (GPDC) and instead make necessary refinements to improve the model in support of patients and providers. Direct Contracting is an accountable care model for traditional Medicare. Stopping Direct Contracting is bad policy and would undermine our health system’s move to value-based payment models, which is sorely needed to achieve the triple aim of better patient satisfaction, higher quality care, and more affordable care. Traditional Medicare patients’ care would be worse off without the benefits and quality of care provided by Direct Contracting Entities (DCEs).
