Toward Accountable Payment

Which early Medicare ACOs earned bonuses?

by Rob Lazerow

CMS continues to release performance results for the 114 organizations that joined the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) in 2012.

Back in January, CMS announced that 54 ACOs successfully reduced spending for attributed beneficiaries below their expenditure target and that 29 of these ACOs generated sufficient savings to qualify for bonuses. But the agency did not identify the names of the 29 ACOs—until now.

Check out the early MSSP winners below.
