CMS Releases Letter of Intent Request for Direct Contracting Options

CMS has issued a request for organizations to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) if they are interested in participating in the Professional and Global Options of Direct Contracting under the new Primary Cares Initiative. An LOI is required in order to apply to the Direct Contracting Model Professional and Global Options, but it will not bind an interested organization to participate. To access the LOI, please click here.

Here is what readers should know about this LOI request:

  • The LOI must be received by August 2, 2019 at 11:59 PM.
  • Failure to submit an LOI during this timeframe will render the organization ineligible to apply during the application period. Because of this, C-TAC recommends that organizations submit an LOI even if they are not currently sure that they will apply to participate in the initiative.
  • The LOI form includes a list of CMMI initiatives. Those who submit an LOI will be required to indicate if their organization is currently participating in, has participated in, or has applied to any of the listed initiatives.
  • This LOI request does not include the Geographic Option of Direct Contracting. CMS has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit public input on this option. Responses to the RFI, which is available here, must be submitted by May 23, 2019 at 11:59 PM.
