Any provider or practice participating in Medicare fee-for-service who is not in another Medicare Shared Savings Program and is interested in improving quality and coordination of care. In some cases, specialists can be in more than one Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO.
1. Improved patient care for Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries through effective and efficient provider collaboration and MSSP ACO support services.
2. No individual MIPS reporting and certain advantages in MIPS scoring
3. Potentially better scores on Medicare’s Physician Compare website
4. Better management of your Medicare fee-for-service patient panel
Services that can improve patient care, such as analyzing and acting on patient data and clinical care coordination for high-risk patients, can be provided at no cost for Medicare FFS beneficiaries.
5. Potential for shared savings
If there are cost savings derived from the work, the savings are allowed to be shared with ACO participants as determined by the Queen’s MSSP ACO Board.
