The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) is scheduled to discuss an analysis of the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) at their public meeting on January 17-18, 2019. Commissioners will discuss the MSSP and its performance relative to CMS benchmarks.

Commissioners will also vote on draft recommendations on payment adequacy for hospitals (inpatient and outpatients services), physicians and ambulatory surgical centers. Final recommendations will be included in their March 2019 Report to Congress.
