New Jersey was chosen as one of seven states to contribute in a Center for Medicare Advantage and Medicaid Services experiment program in which, through multipayer agreement, physicians are encouraged to provide more coordinated care.
The comprehensive primary care scheme is being initiated in New Jersey, along with New York, Colorado, Arkansas and three other states. According to the CMS website, Medicare Plans will work with commercial and state health insurance plans and provide bonus payments to primary care doctors who are able to coordinate care for their patients in a better manner. The physicians who will take part have been limited to 75 practices and these physicians will be provided resources to bring about improvement in coordinated care.
New Jersey insurers who are partaking alongside CMS are Amerigroup, AmcriHcalth New Jersey, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, Teamsters Multi-Employer Taft Hartley Funds and United Healthcare.
