Proposed changes to the Medicare Shared Savings Program regulations

Physician Practice Insider, February 9, 2016

On January 28, CMS posted a fact sheet regarding a proposed rule that would update the methodology used to calculate the benchmarks of Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) that continue their participation in the Medicare Shared Savings Program after an initial three-year agreement period. This proposed rule expands upon issues discussed in the June 2015 Shared Savings Program final rule, in which CMS committed to engaging in additional rulemaking for modifications to the Shared Savings Program’s methodology for resetting benchmarks.
