Proposed v. Final ACO Rule

By Gregg A. Masters, MPH

Deep in the 690+ pages of the document filed with the OFR, is a nifty little matrix that compares key provisions of the ‘notice of proposed rule making’ to the final rule which theoretically incorporated the best and brightest suggestions pro-offered in 1,300+ comments supplied to CMS.

That pre/post matrix can be accessed here. It is a good cheat sheet to follow along with some of the key provisions providing a fair amount of ‘stakeholder heartburn’.

In the end, and in the hard to please everyone department, AMA acknowledges CMS for reducing the number of quality measures, while ASCO expresses it concern over their reduction and failure to reflect the QM measures specific to oncology.
