On May 17, the Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed three initiatives related to the Shared Savings Program (SSP) and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). The initiatives would be implemented through the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI or Innovation Center), a new center within CMS that was established under the health reform law. The Innovation Center has broad authority and $10 billion in funding to help develop new models of payment and care delivery under the Medicare and Medicaid programs, including new types of ACO models.
