It's been five years since Medicare rolled out its first program for accountable care organizations. Although some ACOs are sharing in greater risk, most are sticking to Medicare's safer, upside-only track. Use the interactive below to explore which programs Medicare ACOs are participating in in 2017.
Search for an ACO to see which program it participates in:
Shared Savings Track 1
Track 1 is upside only, so that ACOs share in savings but not in losses.
Shared Savings Track 2
Track 2 share savings and losses with Medicare at a rate of up to 60%.
Shared Savings Track 3
ACOs in Track 3 share savings and losses with Medicare at a rate of up to 75%.
Comprehensive ESRD Care Model
The Comprehensive End-Stage Renal Disease Model (CEC) includes one-sided and two-sided risk tracks. This accountable care model for Medicare beneficiaries with end-stage renal disease brings together dialysis clinics, nephrologists and other providers.
Next Generation ACOs can choose from two arrangements for taking on risk. In one, they can share savings and losses of up to 80% in the first three years, then 85% in the following two years. The other arrangement offers them shared savings and losses of up to 100%.
