By Sanjay Seth MD – When it comes to the proposed “Pathways to Success” for ACOs participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, my suggestion is this: Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.
By Rose Higgins – The Medicare Share Savings Program (MSSP) enables providers to assume value-based risk on care delivery for defined populations.
Affordable Care Act Accountable Care Organization initiatives put patients at the center of their care while generating more than $1.29 billion in total Medicare savings since 2012.
The NRACC announced that Rural Health Clinics, Federally Qualified Health Centers, rural hospitals with less than 100 beds and independent practices may be eligible for free participation in the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced 121 new participants in Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO) initiatives designed to improve the care patients receive in the health care system and lower costs. With this announcement, ACOs now represent 49 states and the District of Columbia.
In December, the CMS, and the OMB published a lengthy notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to improve the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP).
CMS released a final rule updating the Medicare Shared Savings Program to encourage the delivery of high-quality care for Medicare beneficiaries and build on the early successes of the program and of the Pioneer Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Model.
