Comparing standardized beneficiary spending and utilization measures across Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) ACOs is critical to achieving better care, better health, and smarter spending. To help members get an accurate picture of how their ACOs are performing relative to peers, we continuously work to improve the data quality and timeliness of the NAACOS Benchmarking Comparison and Performance Analysis (BCAPA) web-based reporting tool. 

The latest BCAPA report is now available and allows ACOs to compare their performance with national and state ACO peer groups on Part A and Part B beneficiary spending and utilization measures. The web-based tool allows users to navigate across years, ACO beneficiary categories, and comparison groups. Users can select wage standardized or unadjusted comparisons, and reports are easily exported to Excel. 

Our BCAPA tool is available to nearly all organizations, but the cost depends upon your membership status with NAACOS and your type of organization.  Much of the BCAPA data is available to ACO members without a fee or at a significant discount.  If you are an ACO, consider joining as a member before paying for BCAPA reports. The pricing structure is as follows:

Please note:  BCAPA reports are available for MSSP ACOs only.  NAACOS does not have access to CMS data for Next Generation or commercial ACOs.  If you are a Next Gen, Commercial or Associate Member of NAACOS we can develop reports for a fee if you share your ACO provider lists. If you are a Commercial or Associate Member of NAACOS, we can develop reports if you provide the data.  You may also purchase peer group reports at member rates.  Please contact [email protected] for more information on these options.

While we believe the BCAPA Tool will assist ACO leaders in evaluating their performance relative to peers, NAACOS is not responsible for the manner in which the tool is used or for the results produced. BCAPA and any documentation is provided "as is." Data is obtained from public and governmental sources and is believed to be reliable but may not necessarily be complete, nor does NAACOS guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the data.
