AHA, Others Urge HHS to Extend Next Generation ACO Model

April 12, 2021

Fourteen organizations, including the AHA, urge the Department of Health and Human Services to extend the Next Generation Accountable Care Organization model through 2022, and create a permanent full-risk ACO option based on it for the future. The model currently is slated to end this year, leaving participants with the choice of moving to the Medicare Shared Savings Program ENHANCED track or out of alternative payment models.
