MSSP ACO Participation Waiver Disclosure

The Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has provided waivers of certain federal fraud and abuse laws that may otherwise limit innovations by ACO’s participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (“MSSP”). In accordance with the ACO Participation Waivers set forth in 76 Fed. Reg. 67992 (Nov. 2, 2011), Accountable Care Medical Group of Florida, Inc. (“ACMG”) seeks waiver protection for the arrangement described below: 

ACMG’s governing body made a bona fide determination that the arrangement between ACMG, its Participants and Independent Living Systems are reasonably related to the purposes of the MMSP.  As part of its efforts to: (1) promote better care for individuals; (2) promote better health for populations; and (3) lower growth expenditures, ACMG is instituting its post-acute care (“PAC”) program.  ACMG’s PAC program is facilitating a collaborative relationship between patients, PCPs and PAC Providers, in conjunction with the network management services of CHCTS, a company with a successful history of coordinating care among PAC Providers.  By identifying patients being discharged from an acute care setting, creating a patient-centered care plan and coordinating the patients’ care, ACMG will reduce the total costs of care while improving overall health.  As ACMG implements the program across its ACO beneficiary population, ACMG will promote the better health of populations and lower growth expenditures. (76 Fed. Reg. at 68000 and 68002).
