NAACOS Statement on Proposed 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule 

Attributed to Clif Gaus, Sc.D., President and CEO of the National Association of ACOs  

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) showed its commitment to supporting value-based care and growing participation in accountable care organizations in this proposed rule. It addresses several issues that NAACOS has been advocating for, including improvements in quality reporting, more fair benchmarking policies, a smooth transition to a new risk adjustment model, keeping advanced payments for new ACOs who transition to risk, helping ACOs who serve high-cost beneficiaries and others.   

NAACOS thanks CMS for its continued leadership on this issue and its willingness to address the barriers standing in the way of clinicians and health systems who want to provide higher quality, more cost effective, coordinated care for patients.
