Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO

CMS’ MSSP ACO program has become a foundation for the nation’s continued transition to value-based care, offering a number of options for providers interested in value based contracting for traditional Medicare beneficiaries. More than a decade since its launch, it continues to serve as both an entry point for those new to value and a stalwart for value networks that are deep into their transformation journey.

It is important to note that in May of 2024, for a 2025 launch, there is an opportunity to apply for a new MSSP ACO option that is targeted at “low cost” MSSP ACOs – mainly those that are physician or FQHC driven. This option offers a $250,000 one time up front payment against future shared savings and a prospective monthly primary care payment.
