CMS Hosts Webinar on ACO Track 1+ Model

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Registration is open for a webinar hosted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the ACO Track 1+ model.  Previously, CMS announced that beginning in 2018 the ACO Track 1+ model would be an option under the Advanced APM track of the Quality Payment Program.


ACO Track 1+ Webinar

Wednesday, March 22

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET

Registration Information is available here.


The webinar will provide an overview of the Medicare ACO Track 1+ model including details on the model’s design; eligibility and application requirements; and evaluation and learning activities.

This model will test a payment design that incorporates more limited downside risk than is currently present in Tracks 2 or 3 of the Medicare Shared Savings Program. CMS designed this model balancing the dual needs of encouraging small practices to advance to performance-based risk, while also allowing hospitals, including small rural hospitals, to participate. A factsheet on the ACO Track 1+ Model is available here.
