Health Leaders Media

At least four accountable care organizations are in the process of notifying their providers that they intend to move out of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Pioneer ACO program and into the Medicare Shared Savings Program.

As many as nine of the 32 Pioneer ACOs may eventually shift, but only four are known to be actively pursuing a change now. They have until July 15 to notify CMS of their intentions.
