Medicare Shared Savings Program and Advance Payment Model
Application Process National Provider Call

Registration is no longer available for this event.

Description
On October 20, 2011, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule under the Affordable Care Act to establish the Medicare Shared Savings Program, along with a notice for the Advance Payment Model that will provide additional support to physician-led and rural ACOs participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program. These two initiatives will help providers participate in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to improve quality of care for Medicare patients.

On Thursday, March 1, 2012, CMS is hosting a National Provider Call, where subject matter experts will provide an overview and updates to the Medicare Shared Savings Program application and Advance Payment Model application processes. A question and answer session will follow the presentations.

The Medicare Shared Savings Program Application and the Advance Payment Model webpages have important information, dates, and materials on the application process. Call participants are encouraged to review the applications and materials prior to the call.

Target Audience
