CHICAGO, Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Becker's Hospital Review is pleased to release the 2019 edition of its ACOs
Becker's developed this list to highlight 130 ACOs across the country and examine the opportunities for improving quality care and care coordination. The editorial team accepted nominations and conducted independent research to create the list.
There are 559 Medicare ACOs across the U.S., according to the National Association of ACOs. Around 12.3 million Medicare beneficiaries — 20 percent of all Medicare beneficiaries — participate in an ACO, and hundreds of other patients participate in commercial and Medicaid ACOs.
CMS launched the Medicare Shared Savings Program in 2012, which includes three tracks to encourage voluntary participation in ACO programs. In 2018, the agency added Track 1+, which offers lower shared risk than existing tracks and ACO models. The Next Generation ACO model launched in 2016, requiring providers to take on greater financial risk with the potential for more shared savings.
Becker's Hospital Review thanks Premier for sponsoring this list.
