Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC+)
Our practice is participating in CPC+, the nations largest-ever program to improve primary care. Through CPC+, our insurers will give our practice additional resources to help us better manage your care. We hope to provide you the highest quality patient-centered care.
To help us take better care of you, Medicare will start sharing some of your personal health information with us. This will help provide us with a more complete picture of your health and be better able to coordinate your care.
If you want to stop Medicare from sharing this information, you should call 1-800-MEDICARE ( 1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
Your Medicare benefits aren’t changing. You still have the right to use or visit any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. Your doctor may continue to recommend that you see particular doctors for your specific health needs, but it’s always your choice which doctors you use or hospital you visit.
If you have questions or concerns, you can call Shelly Partridge at 541-389-1118 x102, or bring it up next time you’re in the office for an appointment. You can also visit: https:innovation.cms.gov/initiatives/comprehensive-primary-care-plus, contact CPC+ Support at CPCPlus@Telligen.com or 1-888-372-3280 with questions.
