ACOs Continue to be a Major Focus
On June 3, 2011 NRHA submitted comments relating to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) newly released Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) regulation. Since the close of the comment period on June 6, many news organizations have begun reporting on the viability of the program and its place in entitlement reform. Among those reporting on the developments are the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.
NRHA's comment is available here. Please contact NRHA government affairs staff with any questions relating to ACOs
