CMS assigns patients to the ACO based on the plurality of primary care services provided over the last three years. Generally speaking, your practice will be assigned the patients for whom your practice has provided the majority of primary care services.
When operating successfully, an ACO will promote an enhancement of primary care services, especially for complex and high-risk patients. These enhanced services include annual wellness visits, transitional care coordination visits, chronic care coordination and advanced care directives, each of which is reimbursable, resulting in a increase in fee-for-service revenue for participating practices.
You will be required to document and report on 17 clinical quality measures which are very similar to PQRS measures and which satisfy the PQRS incentive.
There is no cost to participate.
The ACO will promote and support the capture of reimbursable primary care services, including annual wellness, transitional care coordination, chronic care coordination, and advanced care directives, resulting in an increase in fee-for-service revenue.
