The Medicare-Medicaid Accountable Care Organization Model team will be hosted a webinar for states that are participating in the Medicare-Medicaid ACO Model on Thursday, June 15, 2017. Participating states have the opportunity to share in Medicare savings generated by Medicare-Medicaid ACOs in their state. This webinar covered the methodology for calculating those shared savings.
October 5, 2017 - After careful consideration, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is withdrawing its Request for Letters of Intent to states to participate in the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation’s Medicare-Medicaid ACO Model and will not be moving forward with implementation of the Model. CMS is withdrawing the Request for Letters of Intent because, although several states expressed early interest in the Model, CMS did not receive any letters of intent for the 2018 start date and received only one letter of intent for 2019.
