Improved User’s Guide for Comprehensive Payment Calculator Now Ready to Use. Thank you to everyone who reviewed the Calculator and User’s Guide and shared your feedback!  The Comprehensive Payment Calculator and its User’s Guide have been updated based on your comments. To find both, go here.

The Calculator can be used by practices and payers to better understand how Comprehensive Primary Care Payment may be implemented. Physicians and payers can now explore new options for developing PCMH payment frameworks and/or replace existing Fee for Service contracts.  We encourage you to work with the Calculator and send us your feedback. We will use your feedback to continue to improve the Calculator and User’s Guide.
