According to a new survey from the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN), one-fifth of current accountable care organizations say they will participate in the new Next Generation ACO model.
The new model allows participants to take on more financial risk-and potentially reap greater rewards, and offers more predictable financial targets than earlier programs. Experts say the new model addresses many of the challenges its predecessors have faced.
Most of respondents to HIN’s survey are current participants of the MSSP model; forty-four percent participate in private ACOs; and the rest take part in Medicaid ACOs, CMS Advance Payment ACOs, the Pioneer ACOs or “other” models. Approximately half said they employ a hybrid reimbursement model which includes fee-for-service, care coordination and shared savings.
