The firm's Healthcare & Life Sciences will host the first in a series of accountable care organization (ACO) webinars titled "ACO Proposed Rules: Understanding the Key Aspects of this New Accountable Delivery Model."
On March 31, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and several other federal agencies proposed a regulatory framework for ACOs participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program. Section 3022 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) establishes a Medicare Shared Savings Program for ACOs, to be implemented on January 1, 2012.
