Source: Greenway Health

  • ACO providers can choose to participate in a Medicare-­‐based shared savings-­‐only model with no financial risk for the first three years of participation
    • This represents the purest form of shared savings as a one-­‐sided risk model
    • These ACO participants have the potential to realize up to 50 percent of shared savings

  • The program also includes provisions allowing physicians to participate in more than one Medicare ACO
