Archway Health CEO Dave Terry was recently quoted in McKnight’s article titled “CMS surprises-and doesn’t- with pay model changes” on the elimination of previously mandatory payment models. “We thought [the models] would probably be switched from mandatory to voluntary,” he said. “But we didn’t think they would be eliminated, just because there is demand for these programs on the voluntary side.”
Although the complete elimination of the program was a surprise to many, experts predicted a shift from mandatory participation to voluntary. As we previously highlighted in this blog post, our team at Archway believes that this news is promising for the future of voluntary programs.
