Quoted @SeemaCMS

In our new Geographic Direct Contracting Model, #Medicare beneficiaries in Model geographies will maintain all of their existing Original Medicare benefits and may still see any provider they choose. They may also receive enhanced benefits.

Excited to see the announcement of the Direct Contracting Geographic Model! Thank you @SeemaCMS, @BradSmithCMMI, and the @CMSinnovates team—this is a huge step forward for patient care across the United States.
