CMS To Hold Series of Regional ‘Listening Sessions’

During these sessions, CMS  intends to highlight health reform efforts while also gaining continuing input from community stakeholders. CMS’s purpose in organizing the regional sessions is to clarify that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has given it new opportunities to improve the care delivery and payment system, including Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) under the ACA’s Shared Savings Program.

Each listening session will minimally focus on:

  • The ‘Shared Savings Program’ (MSSP) for ACOs
  • The new Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI); and
  • The Federal Coordinated Health Care Office (FCHCO)
