The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services today released a FAQ on the Community Health Access and Rural Transformation Model.

Announced in August, the two-track model seeks to provide up-front funding and predictable payments, reduce regulatory burden and increase flexibilities for rural participants.

Applications to participate in the Community Transformation Track are due Feb. 16. CMS plans to select up to 15 rural communities to begin the track next summer, and to request applications for the ACO Transformation Track early next year.
