The CMS will only use mandatory payment models when the agency feels it can’t get enough participation or have adverse selection for voluntary models, a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation official said on Friday.

The remarks from deputy director Amy Bossano during the National Association of ACOs spring conference in Baltimore comes a day after CMS Administrator Seema Verma hinted that some upcoming models will be mandatory.
