Health Care Webinar Series | ACO Participation, Reforming, and Unwinding in 2019

April 17, 2018 | 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM CDT

Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) must apply to participate in the 2019 Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) no later than June, 2018. Many ACOs face a difficult choice this year, due to new federal government rules requiring longstanding ACOs to begin taking downside risk. This webinar will provide an overview of the legal and actuarial issues that an ACO should consider as it evaluates whether to participate in the MSSP or unwind for the 2019 performance year. We will also discuss strategies for ACOs to make changes that may increase their ability to earn shared savings in the upcoming year.
