Join the National Provider Call today at 1:30 p.m. ET to learn the application process for the Shared Savings Program and Advance Payment Model. A question and answer session will follow the presentation. To receive the call-in information please visit http://www.eventsvc.com/blhtechnologies by 12 p.m. today.  From the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services: On Thursday, Oct 20, CMS issued a final rule under the Affordable Care Act to establish the Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program), along with a notice for the Advance Payment Model that will provide additional support to physician-owned and rural providers. These two initiatives will help providers participate in Medicare Accountable Care Organizations to improve quality of care for Medicare patients. A Notice of Intent to Apply (NOI) memo is currently available on the Shared Savings Program Application page at http://www.CMS.gov/sharedsavingsprogram/37_Application.asp in the “Downloads” section. Submitting the NOI is the first step in the application process. A copy of the Shared Savings Program application will be posted to this website prior to the National Provider Call. CMS will send out an announcement when the application is available on the website. Call participants are encouraged to review the application prior to the call.
