Three more Pioneer ACOs have resigned from the federal shared savings model’s third year, bringing to 13 the number of defections from the original 32, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services acknowledged Thursday. The three now bowing out of the third year of the three-year program are Genesys Physician Health Organization based in Southeastern Michigan; Franciscan Alliance of Indianapolis and Central Indiana; and Renaissance Health Network of Southeastern Pennsylvania. A fourth Pioneer ACO, Sharp Healthcare System, announced last month it had dropped out.
