The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) recently announced a new Accountable Care Organization (“ACO”) model through its Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation ("CMMI"). The new model, called "Next Generation ACO," builds upon the experience gained with the Medicare Shared Savings Program ("MSSP") and Pioneer ACO Models. As with the two existing programs, the Next Generation ACO is a model for traditional fee-for-service ("FFS") Medicare, otherwise known as "Original Medicare."
