Modern Healthcare

The CMS published for the first time the quality and financial performance for individual Pioneer accountable care organizations, a small, select group enlisted for Medicare’s most ambitious test of the payment model. First year financial results show health spending slowed as much as 7% among some ACOs and accelerated as much as 5% for others. In the second year, health spending slowed as much as 5.4% among those that reduced patients’ medical bills and accelerated as much as 5.6% where costs escalated.
