July 31, 2012 — CMS Hosts ACO Application Process National Provider Call

On Oct 20, 2011, CMS issued a final rule under the Affordable Care Act to establish the Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program), along with a notice for the Advance Payment Model that will provide additional support to physician-led and rural Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) participating in the Shared Savings Program.

These two initiatives will help providers participate in ACOs to improve quality of care for Medicare patients.

On Monday, July 31, 2012, CMS hosts a National Provider Call, where subject matter experts provide an overview and updates to the Shared Savings Program application and Advance Payment Model application processes for the January 1, 2013 Shared Savings Program start date. A question and answer session follows the presentations.
