Medicare Direct Contracting Model
CVMG is a CMS Direct Contracting Entity
CVMG is pleased to be named a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Direct Contracting Entity (DCE). This is a special program for Medicare beneficiaries who have Original Medicare. Beneficiaries are either aligned by CMS or can voluntarily opt into the program. Beneficiares in the DCE program receive extra benefits while retaining the freedom of choice to go to any doctor, hospital or other healthcare provider that accepts Medicare.
A DCE is a group of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers who agree to work together to keep Medicare patients healthy. CVMG providers agree to work together to see that beneficiaries get the right care at the right time. CMVG helps providers work together to give beneficiaries better care. CVMG coordinates patient care according to individual medical needs and treatment choices. CVMG protects beneficiary medical records and privacy and works to reduce duplicate tests and duplicate paperwork that cost beneficiaries time and money.
CVMG will offer DCE beneficiaries enhanced engagement and coordination of care through incentive programs and cost-sharing. CVMG partner with beneficiaries to provide necessary preventive care, including adherence to treatment plans and prescriptions, follow-up care, and management of chronic conditions.
