The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Friday released its request for applications for the Geographic Direct Contracting Model, known as Geo.

CMS expects to accept applications March 1 through April 2 via an online portal. Participants in the model, announced last month and the last of the agency’s suite of direct contracting options, will take responsibility for the total cost of care for a portion of all Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries in a specific region. The goal is to enable direct contracting entities to build integrated relationships with health care providers and community organizations in a region to better coordinate care and address the clinical and social needs of Medicare beneficiaries.
