PYA Releases Updated Medicare ACO Road Map

Updated Medicare ACO Road Map White Paper

Completing the MSSP application is no small feat, and interested providers should get started as soon as possible. The first step in the process is a careful and thorough review of MSSP requirements for participation

As of January 1, 2016, there are 434 accountable care organizations (ACOs) participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). With the new Medicare Merit-Based Incentive Payment System on its way, interest in MSSP participation is at a peak.

The MSSP application process is complicated by the overwhelming level of detail contained in the hundreds of pages of MSSP regulations and related guidance. PYA’s updated white paper, MSSP ACO Roadmap , condenses those rules down to the core requirements. The Roadmap arranges the information to facilitate substantive discussions and decision-making, rather than hand-wringing over every last regulatory provision.

According to the Roadmap, “completing the MSSP application is no small feat, and interested providers should get started as soon as possible. The first step in the process is a careful and thorough review of MSSP requirements for participation.”

With the Roadmap, all of the information needed for such a review is compiled in a single document. The Roadmap covers five areas: (1) the case for MSSP participation, (2) ACO formation and MSSP application, (3) operations, (4) shared savings payments, and (5) private payer programs.

Copies of the Roadmap are available on PYA’s website. For more information about the white paper, contact Martie Ross at PYA, (800) 270-9629.
