Becker's Hospital Review

There are signs that private insurers may not follow the template for accountable care organizations set out in federal proposed regulations for Medicare ACOs, according to a report by AISHealth.

While the major private insurers like Cigna are not yet revealing their responses to the proposed regulations, released on March 31, consultants are already weighing in on whether insurers would follow key elements of the proposal, such as reporting 65 quality measures and using a shared savings model.
