Panel – Regulatory Frameworks to Support Financial Risk-Taking

As more providers move into risk-based contracts, it will be increasingly critical to establish regulatory frameworks that provide room for innovation while also ensuring appropriate patient protections are in place. While some argue this is only possible through establishing narrow waivers and flexibilities, others suggest that broad regulatory waivers are needed to promote innovation through flexibility. This session will explore what actions the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has taken to date to develop regulatory frameworks that support financial risk-taking, what additional actions might be needed in the future, and ways to ensure patient protections while promoting innovation.
