The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is announcing the Community Health Access and Rural Transformation (CHART) Model ACO Transformation Track Request for Applications (RFA) release date is delayed from spring 2021 to spring 2022. The CHART Model aims to address disparities by providing a way for rural communities to transform their health care delivery systems by leveraging innovative financial arrangements as well as operational and regulatory flexibilities. This delay applies only to the ACO Transformation Track of the CHART Model. We will notify stakeholders of any updates via the CHART listserv, as information becomes available. Updates for the CHART Model will also be posted to the CHART Model webpage.
