As CMS continues to promote accountability for populations of patients through its Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP), UHF has been tracking the progress of the New York organizations participating in the program.
This report focuses on New York Medicare accountable care organizations’ (ACOs’) performance in 2017, the most recent year for which CMS data are available. It then looks at the current mechanics of the MSSP as well as some forthcoming changes to the program, reviews the financial and quality results of the participating ACOs, and examines these results in light of different characteristics of the state’s Medicare ACOs—ownership, size, location, and penetration of Medicare ACOs among eligible Medicare beneficiaries in communities across the state.
