Who We Are

Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) is a federal initiative that seeks to strengthen primary care through care delivery transformation and multi-payer payment reform. Oregon was one of 18 regions selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to join the program, which began in 2017. CPC+ builds upon the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative (CPCI, or CPC Classic), in which Oregon participated. CPC+ is consistent with many of Oregon’s innovations, which include delivery system transformation, investment in primary care, and an emphasis on value-based payment models.


Oregon CPC+ Payer Group Goals

  • Collaborate to support sustainable primary care transformation that results in healthier patients and lower costs
  • Identify and share payer and clinic best practices to achieve program care delivery and payment model goals
  • Align to reduce fragmentation, seek simplification, and leverage existing resources
  • Seek to understand and demonstrate the value of the model to change expectations of how primary care is funded

  1. Multi-stakeholder alignment
  2. Value-based payment model for primary care
  3. Practice support
