Could someone please crosspost to AAFP list serv?

 Please see my original post. Much has happened
  I have had conversations with many people
 -we would like to  submit this proposal -a proposed payment model for office based PCP payment - NPS and Docs - based on risk stratification by  using Hows Your Health ;  providers would be  in a project that paid them 2.00/day-  60PMPM -for low and medium risk patients and  3.00 or 90PMPM for high risk patients  Panels would be capped at 1500 patients/provider so you cannot  just add patient  names get rich and do no work;  15% of your  payment would  be withheld until the end of the yr and if you met the benchmarks you get the 15%; if not you might have a reason  and be allowed a second chance you might be kicked out of the project
 That is the basics

 The following now needs to happen
1 I need a professional writer to tie the proposal together( apparently I can't  write)
2  I need to re- create this list of you that were interested.  I had created a list that got me 5000 medicare covered lives Then I was told it was not my  job to  do that Medicare would run the project. NOW I am told I should prove I have docs committed to  do this
I think it can be any payer but starts with medicare
 I am asked to ask people for money to pay the writer and show committment    I am against this    I do not  want to take money  log it as income and be some kind of middleman making docs  that I do not know well send me money as a comittement  to participate in  such a project if it began    There was an independent woman in Reston VA,  there were some of you  I called, .....    I need to find asap interested parties I have no idea whether you would say you were interested only if you take Medicare I think if you are willing to be  in a pilot and  be paid this  way PERIOD  all payers please tell me  Please contact me and tell me your panel size of medicare and total  This is a large chance to infuence how  you might be paid     I need you to be serious    I have no idea how to make you promise to  do it if offered ,nor how to find a writer   I will pay the writer
 Comments please  \
Note many details of the project are to be worked out but the basics are above Very  high cost things to the practice like vaccines and IUDs would stil lbe FFS but very few things will be carved out
