The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation tomorrow will host the first in a series of Open Door Forums on its Next Generation Accountable Care Organization Model. The model, announced last week, is intended for ACOs that are experienced in coordinating care for populations of patients and will allow them to assume higher levels of financial risk and reward than under the Pioneer Model and Shared Savings Program. Round one letters of intent to participate are due May 1 and applications are due June 1. Click here for details on accessing tomorrow’s call.
