Health Leaders Media

Nine of the 32 Pioneer ACOs will not participate in third year of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ pilot program for accountable care organizations, HealthLeaders Media has learned.

Seven of the nine are applying to transition to the Medicare Shared Savings Program, while two are abandoning the program completely, although CMS declined to identify which ACOs are leaving and which are simply shifting to the MSSP.
