Preparing for Updates to the Medicare Shared Savings Program
The Health Care Blog

Later this month – perhaps as early as this week – the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is poised to release a proposed rule to update the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). MSSP is the national program which allows providers to create ACOs, and it is the program under which Aledade ACOs operate. This will be the first update to the program in three years, and we expect there will be a great deal to unwrap once the rule is public (we also acknowledge that we are among the few who await publications of CMS rules with the anticipation of children on Christmas morning).
