The Community Health Access & Rural Transformation (CHART) Model team is hosting a webinar TOMORROW, Tuesday, August 18, from 1:00 – 2:30 PM EDT.

To promote better health outcomes for the approximately 57 million Americans living in rural communities, including millions of Medicare & Medicaid beneficiaries facing unique challenges (i.e., limited transportation options, shortage of health care services, and the inability to benefit from technology and care-delivery innovations), CMS is launching the CHART models to address the disparities by leveraging innovative financial and operational arrangements.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will offer a Community Transformation Track and an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Transformation Track to test whether upfront investments, predictable capitated payments, and operational and regulatory flexibilities will enable rural healthcare providers to improve access to high quality care while reducing healthcare costs.

CMS anticipates that the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Community Transformation Track will be available in September on the Model website. The Request for Application (RFA) for the ACO Transformation Track will be available in early 2021.
