Accountable Care Organizations
September 21, 2010, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Tom Enders, Senior Partner and Managing Director, Health Care Sector, and Bob Reese, Global Health Solutions Group, CSC. Starting in 2010 Medicaid will initiate ACO demonstration pilots and beginning in 2012, ACO’s can contract with CMS for Medicare patients on a shared-savings basis. ACO’s planned under the Affordable Care Act, however, are a shared incentive model without risk; intend the use of fee-for-service payment to providers, and do not permit limitation in patient choice (the use of gatekeepers). This teleconference describes the requirements to succeed as an ACO under the Affordable Care Act, with particular emphasis on the infrastructure and enabling information technology.
