December 21, 2018 – The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services today reported more than $164 million in Medicare savings – with strong performance on quality metrics – for 44 Next Generation Accountable Care Organizations in 2017. This builds on savings of $62 million across 18 Next Generation ACOs in 2016.
“We applaud CMS’s continued support for the move to two-sided models in traditional Medicare,”
said Next Gen Coalition Executive Director Mara McDermott.
“The strong performance of Next Gen ACOs, which accept the highest levels of performance-based risk, is proof positive that this program works and should be strengthened and continued to improve care delivery for patients.”
