Premier and 18 other leading healthcare organizations called on Congressional leaders to ensure that providers who put themselves at financial risk to deliver better quality, closely coordinated and more cost-effective care continue to have strong incentives to engage in advanced value-based care models. Premier and organizations representing clinicians, medical groups, health systems and other provider groups sent a letter to House and Senate leaders urging them to freeze the thresholds to qualify for the MACRA advanced alternative payment model bonus for the next two performance years.
