On October 20, 2011, CMS issued a final rule under the Affordable Care Act to establish the Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program). This initiative will help providers participate in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to improve quality of care for Medicare patients. On April 9, CMS hosts a National Provider Call on the Shared Savings Program application process.
CMS subject matter experts provide information on what you can do to prepare for the Shared Savings Program application process for the January 1, 2014 start date. This National Provider Call includes information on key dates, the Notice of Intent to Apply (NOI) submission, and the first steps in submitting an application. A question and answer session follow the presentation.
The Shared Savings Program Application web page has important information, dates, and materials on the application process. Call participants are encouraged to review the application and materials prior to the call.
