The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that the Million Hearts (MH) Cardiovascular Risk Reduction Model is accepting applications through September 10, 2015. The program offers financial incentives to providers who participate in identifying and testing scalable models of care delivery, with the goal of reducing patients’ cardiovascular risks.

The MH model is supported by the American College of Cardiology, which states that the program “proposes a novel way of lowering risks of heart attack and stroke by proposing a new way to pay for prevention.”

To learn more, register now for a question and answer session on Thursday, September 3, from 10-11 a.m. You can also learn more about the MH model by visiting the website, listening to an informational webinar, or reviewing the Frequently Asked Questions. For questions, call (703) 894-4399 or email mhmodel@cms.hhs.gov.
