Re: Advancing Health Equity and Value Through Alternative Payment Models

Dear Secretary Becerra:

On behalf of the undersigned organizations, we look forward to working with you to advance health equity and value through innovative alternative payment models (APMs), such as the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and models tested through the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center). The Innovation Center and MSSP, both of which were established under the Affordable Care Act, have given providers needed tools to innovate care, providing opportunities to collaborate across the care continuum while lowering costs and maintaining quality. Adoption of value-based payments has played a critical role in slowing healthcare spending over the last decade.
