CMS has scheduled two calls to discuss the application process for the ACA’s Medicare Shared Savings Program for the January 1, 2014 start date. This initiative is designed to help providers participate in accountable care organizations to improve quality of care for Medicare patients. A June 20 call will feature an overview and updates to the Shared Savings Program application process, and a July 18 call will provide an opportunity to ask questions of CMS subject matter experts.
