The clock is ticking and the CMS continues its community outreach via their series of National Provider Calls on the application process for ACOs interested in submitting for the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
The deadline for the class of 2015 is approaching with the next call scheduled for Tuesday, April 22nd 2014 from 1;30 – 3PM Eastern.
You can register for this call here.
Space is limited and demand for these calls often exceed available slots, so get your registration in early.
Meanwhile, the description of the program is as follows:
During this MLN Connects™ National Provider Call, CMS subject matter experts cover helpful tips on completing a successful application, including information on how to submit an acceptable ACO Participant List, Sample ACO Participant Agreement, Executed ACO Participant Agreements, and Governing Body Template for the Medicare Shared Savings Program application.
