In its highly anticipated final blueprint for the Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO) program, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) adopted many of the NCMS, AMA and other physician organizations’ suggestions for encouraging physician-led Medicare ACOs. On Monday, November 21, 2011, at 7:00pm Eastern Time, AMA President-Elect Jeremy Lazarous, MD
, and national expert Harold Miller
will lead a 60-minute webinar that will outline significant improvements and opportunities for physicians in the final ACO rule.
The webinar will highlight changes to the ACO Rule, which came after the highly successful NCMS/AMA Pathways to Success ACO Seminar that was held in July in Research Triangle Park. Included will be discussion about the application process and Q&A about ACOs and other payment innovations.
