The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center has announced that beginning August 1, 2012, it will be accepting applications for an additional round of Advance Payment Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) that would begin on January 1, 2013.
Organizations interested in the Advance Payment ACO Model should start their application process by submitting a Notice of Intent (NOI) to apply for the Medicare Shared Savings Program performance period that begins January 1, 2013. This NOI is due June 29, 2012. Organizations that submit this NOI will then have the opportunity to submit applications to both the Medicare Shared Savings Program and the Advance Payment ACO Model.
