ACO Investment Model targets rural, underserved areas

Physician Practice Insider, July 14, 2015

On June 25, CMS posted a fact sheet about the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Investment Model, which is an initiative developed by the CMS Innovation Center for organizations participating as ACOs in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). The ACO Investment Model is a new model of pre-paid shared savings that builds on experience with the Advance Payment Model to encourage new ACOs to form in rural and underserved areas and current MSSP ACOs to transition to arrangements with greater financial risk.
