Accountable Care Organization Member Briefing

 
 
This Member Briefing provides an overview of the final regulations covering Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and the issues surrounding the process of applying, forming, and operating an ACO. From the origin of ACOs in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 to the final guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Member Briefing will guide readers through all of the complexities of this developing area of healthcare.
