This Medicare-Medicaid ACO Model webinar included information on the structure of the Model, Model details including beneficiary attribution, financial methodology and quality measurement options within the Model, and an explanation of data, learning and evaluation. The state-specific development and application process, including instructions for submitting letters of intent were also discussed. This webinar was open to the general public and targeted towards interested states.
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.
