Northtowns Medical Group, PC Participates in
Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+)
Our practice is participating in CPC+, the nation’s largest-ever program to improve primary care.
Giving doctors extra support to help you get better care
Through CPC+, our insurers will give our practice additional resources to help us better manage your care. We hope to provide you the highest quality patient-centered care.
More information for traditional Medicare (Part A and Part B) beneficiaries
To help us take better care of you, Medicare will start sharing some of your personal health information with us. This information will help provide us a more complete picture of your health so we’re better able to coordinate your care.
If you want to stop Medicare from sharing this information, please let us know as soon as possible so we can notify the CPC+ team.
Your Medicare benefits aren’t changing. You still have the right to use or visit any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. Your doctor may continue to recommend that you see particular doctors for your specific health needs, but it’s always your choice which doctors you use or hospital you visit.
If you have questions or concerns, you can call Ann Gerlach at 716.874.2150, or bring it up next time you’re in the office for an appointment.
You can also visit https://innovation.cms.gov/initiatives/comprehensive-primary-care-plus or contact CPC+ Support at CPCPlus@Telligen.com or 1-888-372-3280.
Northtowns Medical Group has a policy to charge a $50 fee if you fail to show up for a scheduled appointment. This applies to both missed appointments and any appointments cancelled with less than 24 hour notice. This fee is not covered by your insurance company. Future visits may not be scheduled if missed appointment fees are unpaid. In addition, it is the patient's responsibility to know the appointments they have scheduled. Northtowns Medical Group does send messages to the patient portal to remind patients of upcoming appointments. Please consider signing up for patient portal access today so you will receive your appointment reminders!
