In an effort to encourage further cooperation and participation among healthcare providers, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has recently issued a final rule modifying the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) regulations. Under the Final Rule, the CMS has refined the MSSP benchmarking methodology and provided additional options for Accountable Care Organizations to enter performance-
In addition, the Rule also sets important requirements for reopening determinations of ACO shared savings and shared losses.
