The House Energy & Commerce Committee will hold a Health Subcommittee hearing on Thursday, June 13, regarding the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).

The CMMI, also known as the CMS Innovation Center, develops and tests new health care payment and service delivery models known as alternative payment models. It also plays a role in the implementation of the Quality Payment Program, which Congress created as a provision of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015.

“This hearing will give members a chance to hear from the head of CMMI about the challenges to achieving their intended mission and consider whether Congress needs to step in to provide clearer direction or take other steps to ensure beneficiaries are best served,” said Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) and Subcommittee Chair Brett Guthrie (R-Ky.).

The hearing will be livestreamed online at 10:00 a.m. ET. Elizabeth Fowler, Ph.D., J.D., deputy administrator and director of CMMI, will testify before the subcommittee.
