AMA: Medicare ACO plan still needs work
from American Medical News
Significant changes must be made to Medicare's accountable care organization proposal before the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services can finalize the shared savings plan, the American Medical Association stated in comments on the proposal. "A well-developed ACO model has the potential to improve care coordination and quality while promoting cost savings, and to help ensure success the AMA has asked CMS to make numerous revisions and to issue an interim final rule that allows the flexibility to adapt as needed," AMA President Cecil B. Wilson, MD, said in a statement.
