On Thursday, June 24, 2:00 to 4:00 pm ET, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a Special Open Door Forum Call on the new Medicare Shared Savings Program: Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). The call will solicit comments from physicians, physician associations, hospitals, consumer groups, and all others interested in implementation of the new program.
