Jan. 13, 2014

On December 20, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a  Request for Information on the evolution of Accountable Care Organizations.  CMS hopes to obtain input on policy considerations for the next generation of ACOs; topics for feedback include:

  • Input on the second round of applications for the current Pioneer ACO Model, and increasing participation
  • Input on new ACO models that encourage greater care integration and financial accountability

There are a series of questions within the RFI, ranging in topics from soliciting feedback on current model design parameters, to population based payments, to insurance risks and integrating accountability into both Medicare Part D Expenditures and Medicaid care outcomes. Comments are due March 1, 2014.
