Vanguard Medical Group Participating in Historic Public-Private Partnership to Strengthen Primary Care
Date:2/4/2017

Vanguard Medical Group is one of nearly 2,900 primary care practices nationwide participating in Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+), + a partnership that aims to enable primary care practices to care for their patients the way they think will deliver the best outcomes and to pay them for achieving results and improving care. This partnership involves payer partners from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), state Medicaid agencies, commercial health plans, self-insured businesses, and primary care providers.

Through CPC+, CMS will pay primary care practices a care management fee, initially set at an average of $15 per beneficiary per month in Track 1 and $28 per beneficiary per month in Track 2, to support enhanced, coordinated services on behalf of Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries. Simultaneously, participating commercial, state, and other federal insurance plans are also offering enhanced payment to primary care practices designed to support them in providing high-quality primary care on behalf of their members.

For patients, this means that Vanguard physicians may offer longer and more flexible hours; use electronic health records; coordinate care with patients’ other health care providers; better engage patients and caregivers in managing their own care; and provide individualized, enhanced care for patients living with multiple chronic diseases and higher needs.

“CPC plus is a great opportunity for primary care practices such as Vanguard to improve and even transform themselves to better meet the needs of our patients. Practices in this program will be able to provide better coordination of care, track and understand the health care needs of their patients, improve the quality and value of healthcare and help patients better manage their health care costs. Without this program, this improvement would be extremely difficult if not impossible for practices to do on their own.” Said Vanguard Chief Medical Officer Thomas McCarrick MD, MBI

Through a competitive application process, CMS selected primary care practice, Vanguard Medical Group within selected markets to participate in CPC+. Vanguard was chosen based on their use of health information technology; ability to demonstrate recognition of advanced primary care delivery by leading clinical societies; service to patients covered by participating payer partners; participation in practice transformation and improvement activities; and diversity of geography, practice size, and ownership structure.

CPC+ is administered by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMS Innovation Center). The CMS Innovation Center was created by the Affordable Care Act to test innovative payment and service delivery models that have the potential to reduce program expenditures while preserving or enhancing the quality of care.

About Vanguard Medical Group
Vanguard Medical Group P.C. is a regional primary care practice now serving more than 48,000 active patients in six locations. The motivation to develop a larger, regional primary care practice was the recognition that the healthcare system was rapidly changing in ways that did not support small or solo independent physician practices. The founding physicians in Vanguard believe that a strong culture of locally-led practices, guided by a shared vision, and governed by shared values must be at the core of this new organization.

Hospital affiliations include Chilton Memorial Hospital, Morristown Medical Center, Mountainside/UHMC Hospital, Overlook Medical Center, Saint Clare’s Hospital, Saint Barnabas Medical Center, St. Joseph’s Paterson and St. Joseph’s Wayne. Vanguard Medical Group accepts most major insurance plans.
