Early Criticism of ACO Proposed Rule

The ink is barely dry on CMS’s Proposed Rule for ACOs and there has already been a maelstrom of criticism.  HealthAffairs has an interesting post discussing some of the stickier issues.

The Proposed Rule makes exceedingly clear that CMS is asking – almost begging – for public input on these proposals.  Providers and health industry professionals should take these next 60 days to review the Rule with their attorneys and craft incisive comments to shape the Final Regulations.

ACOs are here to stay, folks, but their governing regulations are as soft as wet clay.  Providers must take advantage of this brief opportunity to help mold their final shape.
