Final Medicare rules for ACOs: Major new opportunities for physicians
November 21, 2011

On Oct. 20, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released its highly anticipated final blueprint for the Medicare accountable care organization (ACO) program. The AMA commented extensively on the CMS proposed rule and many of the AMA suggestions for encouraging physician-led ACOs were adopted in the Final Rule, including the establishment of a new $170 million program that will provide advance payments to physicians who want to form Medicare ACOs.

Listen to AMA President-elect Jeremy Lazarus, MD, and national expert Harold Miller in an archived 60-minute webinar that will:

  1. Outline the major provisions of the CMS Final Rule
  2. Explain significant changes from the Proposed to the Final Rule
  3. Provide the timelines and application information for the Advanced Payment ACO program and the Medicare ACO program
  4. Answer physicians' questions about ACOs, the new regulations and other payment innovations
