Linda Magno of the CMS says the Medicare Health Care Quality Demonstration project is one of the agency's boldest initiatives yet. She says the project is a chance for providers to "redesign the healthcare system." The project will feature "a lot of latitude" in payment and waivers of Medicare provisions. And the CMS needs a few good volunteer providers to participate.
