Future: Establishment of a limited set of equity-focused quality metrics common to all CMS programs.

Health equity ensures that everyone has the chance to be as healthy as possible.

The design of value-based arrangements in Medicare can be a useful tool for advancing health equity by encouraging the movement of care upstream to address the health-related social needs and disparities that can lead to or exacerbate poor health outcomes.

To achieve these objectives, CMS is looking forward to close partnerships with healthcare providers, payers, people with Medicare, and stakeholders across our healthcare system. CMS remains committed to advancing value-based care in a way that best meets the needs of people with Medicare, who deserve high-quality, equitable care.
